Water level drops in Castlereagh, Maussakele

The water level of the Castlereagh and Maussakele reservoirs are rapidly receding as a result of the prevailing drought in the Central Province.

These two reservoirs are the main ones that supply water to Laxapana, New Laxapana, Canyon, Wimalasurendra and Polpitiya power plants.

Engineers at the reservoirs said the water level of the two main reservoirs has receded about 19.5 and 19 feet from the spill level yesterday.

The public, therefore, have been requested to use power sparingly to overcome the situation.
