A crack has appeared on the sluice and the outer dam of the country’s largest reservoir Senanayake Samudraya.

Director General of the Irrigation Department Badra Kamaladasa said his department is engaged in a special study to repair the crack.

The Senanayake Samudra with a storage capacity of 770 thousand acre feet of water was built by former Prime Minister D.S. Senanayake in 1949.

The construction of the reservoir was completed in 1953.

An expert team from the Check Republic has also arrived in the country to look into the matter.
