People asked not to visit Kalido beach while sand is pumped

A large number of people have come to shore to gather oysters and seashells putting their lives at risk when sand is pumped from sea to the coast in preserving the Kalido beach, Kalutara North police said.

The sand is pumped four times a day. Many people come there while the sand is pumping, police said.

Ten officers from the Kalutara North Police have been deployed to protect the people at the request of the Coast Conservation and Coastal Resources Management Department.

The sand brought from a ship from Ratmalana is pumped to the beach from 5am and people gather on the beach to see the process every day.

It will take about half an hour to get to the ship and stop the pumping operation. Meanwhile, a reckless onlooker may be caught in a fatal accident.

So the people should not come to the beach while the pumping is on, Colombo South, Coast Conservation and Coastal Resources Management Department Regional Engineer G.H.D. Nandasena said.
