Attention has been drawn to provide information about the water level of the Mahaweli reservoirs through SMS.
The Government Information Department said that the Sri Lanka Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka were taking appropriate action for this.
As a result of this facility, the farming community will be able to plan their cultivation practices in a systematic manner.
It is planned to use this method to inform the people about the water level when it goes down to 40% as well as when it rises above 90%.
The Government Information Department said further that this information could be obtained through 1919 as well.
