Instructions to use water sparingly.
The National Water Supply and Drainage Board requests the public to use water sparingly in view of the rainless weather condition prevalent these days in several areas including the Central Province.
NWSDB chairman Karunasena Hettiarachchi said that this condition had affected the Central province more than other provinces.
NWSDB said that there would be a 10-hour suspension of water supply to several areas today due to the withholding of electricity supply to the Kotte water pump plant.
Accordingly water supply would be thus put on hold to tall areas in Nugegoda, High Level Road, Kotte, Ethul Kotte, Mirihana, Udahamulla, Wijerama, Paagoda and Nawala from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today.
