The report compiled by Norwegian Expert Bent Agard who looked in to the leak in the main tunnel of the Uma Oya multipurpose project was handed over to President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday.

The report points out that the failure to conduct a proper feasibility study and environmental analysis was the reason for a leak in the main tunnel and the drying up of water sources in nearby areas.

It goes on to say that covering leakages with a special cement mixture alone would not help resolve the issue and a special method needed to be followed.

President Sirisena had recalled the issues faced by the people as a result of the project and also said that the government is committed towards resolving the issue.
