‘Minor tanks in Matale run dry’

All the minor tanks in the Matale District have run dry while the water levels in the rest are on the decline, irrigation officials told the Daily News yesterday. The amount of water currently available in these tanks are insufficient for farmers to carry out their agricultural activities, they added.

Furthermore, less than 15,000 acres of land has been used for paddy cultivation, while other crops cultivated with water from the minor tanks have been destroyed, officials said.
