Our news team was alerted recently regarding the plight of several villages located in the Kandy District including that of Alawathugoda & several other areas which were greatly inconvenienced due to the suspension of water supply.
The suspension has been in effect over a period of one week.
Area residents requested of our news team to direct the matter to the attention of officials attached to National Water Supply & Drainage board.
Even Subsequent to such revelations, no measures have been implemented to rectify the issue.
Consequently our news team directed the matter to the attention of the Chairman of the NWSDB Karunasena Hettiarachchi.
He in turn referred us to the NWSDB's Deputy General Manager in charge of the Central Province Lakshman Aththanayeke.
According to him cuts in water supply are being experienced in the Kandy District due to the dry weather being experienced in the area at present.
