Water issue haunts power generation

If the existing drought continues further causing water levels in reservoirs to reduce, water will not be released for hydro power generation, Irrigation Minister Chamal Rajapaksa said.

He said when releasing water from reservoirs, the Irrigation Ministry gives priority to agriculture.

Under the present situation, water will be issued for hydro power generation only after considering the forecast made by the Meteorology Department over the rain to receive, he said.
