President Maithripala Sirisena inaugurated Stage 2 of the Wayamba Ela Project this morning.

This development project will supply water to the Northern Province minimising the lack of supply water faced by the people in irrigating farmland.

Under this scheme, water from the Mahaweli will be diverted from the Eastern Province to the Northern Province.

This will ensure uninterrupted irrigation facilities to 12,500 cultivation lands directly benefitting 13,500 families in the farming community.

The project is expected to provide permanent solutions to the issues of insufficient irrigational water to cultivate both Yala- Maha seasons for the farmer community in the North Western province and prevalence of kidney diseases among people of the area due to lack of clean drinking water.

After the completion of the project 105,000 feet acres of water from the Mahaweli River could be provided to Pollpithigama, Ahatuwewa, Galgamuwa, Mahawa, and Ambanpola areas of the Kurunegala district.

The project, at an estimated cost 16 billion rupees, is to be completed in 2024.
