Malwathu Oya reservoir construction to begin soon

The construction work of the lower Malwathu Oya is to begin shortly, Agriculture Minister P. Harrison said.

The Minister said the construction of the Malwathu Oya reservoir is scheduled to begin before July 26 under the patronage of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and the cost of the project is Rs. 350 million.

Once constructed, the Malwathu Oya reservoir will be the third largest reservoir in the country.

“Parallel to the Malwathu Oya project, the Thanthirimale sacred city will also be developed. People who have lost their lands due to the reservoir project will be resettled in a new village established in the Thanthirimale area,” the Minister said.
