Under the Uma Oya project, the tunnel carrying water from Puhulpola reservoir to Dyraaba reservoir has been connected together.

The director of the multipurpose development project, Dr. Sunil De Silva noted the excavations of the tunnels have been carried out separately in the two reservoirs and they were connected together yesterday.

He added that accordingly Dyraaba reservoir would supply water via the main tunnel for the hydro power station constructed under the Uma Oya project.
