Two Reverse Osmosis plants built by the Navy at the Aranthalawa International Buddhist Centre and Ihala Diggala Primary School in Galewela were vested with the public on June 2,3.

The projects came to fruition as part of the Social Responsibility project of the Sri Lanka Navy initiated under the guidance of Navy Commander Vice Admiral Nishantha Ulugetenne. The Navy enabled its skilled manpower and industrial expertise for this community-oriented development task which was supported by the Ministry of Health.

Work on the project at the Arantalawa International Buddhist Centre which commenced on March 5 was vested with the public on June 2. The opening was held under the patronage of Commander Southeastern Naval Area, Rear Admiral Mahinda Mahawatte. The Reverse Osmosis plant will fulfill the safe drinking water requirement of Bhikkhus at the Arantalawa International Buddhist Centre as well as about 250 families in the locality.

The Reverse Osmosis Plant project at Ihala Diggala Primary School which was initiated in February this year was declared open yesterday (Friday). The children of the Ihala Diggala Primary School together with about 300 families will now have the access to safe drinking water.
