Residents of the Minuwanwewa area in the Kontehela Grama Niladhari Division in Bandarawela have been severely inconvenienced due to the lack of water.

The residents of the area point out that this situation has arisen due to the construction of a road around the lake which has reduced the water capacity of the lake.

Although this lake was rehabilitated at a cost of Rs. 14 million, about 150 families are suffering from water shortages due to the drying up of wells in the area.

They are requesting that the lake be restored to its original condition.
