Use water sparingly; water board
The Water Supply and Drainage Board stated that the consumption of water has been on the increase due to hot weather prevailing in the country.
It also stated that there is a tendency of drying down the catchments due to the current drought situation and asked the public to use water sparingly as the board is unable to supply water as usual.
Meanwhile supply will be interrupted to several areas in Colombo tomorrow and day after tomorrow.
Accordingly, 10-hour water cut starting from 10pm tomorrow to 8am following day will be imposed in Nugegoda, Wijerama, Navala, Maadiwela, Maharagama, Boralesgamuwa and Kesbewa areas.
At the same time, 13-hour water cut starting from 9pm tomorrow to 10am following day will be imposed in Mattakkuliya, Kotahena, Mutwal and Colombo Fort areas.
