People around Muruthawela reservoir lack water

Those who sacrificed houses and properties to develop the Muruthawela reservoir at Wekadawala in Weeraketiya now lament that they do not get water.

About 600 families in the area undergo water scarcity.

They said the officials of the Wekadawala Community Water Project has no source to get water for the project.

They said water was obtained from a tube well and that water had too much of salinity.

High salinity pumps used to get water are now defunct.

The families said the Muruthawela reservoir can supply water to the entire Giruwapattu, but they do not receive a drop of water.
