Four out of the ten spill gates of the Parakrama Samudra were opened today by a foot each, due to the heavy showers experienced in the catchment areas, Polonnaruwa Divisional Irrigation Director S. K. Hewagama said.

He said due to the heavy showers, the water level of the reservoir reached the spill level and more spill gates would be opened if the rains prevail. A water capacity of 560 square feet per second is being released from the spill gates. (K.G. Karunaratne)

    This is pathetic waste of precious water. King Parakramabahu would have been most unhappy to see this. Tanks are not supposed to spill as soon as the rains start. It only shows that the catchment areas have been destroyed.

    Something is really wrong here. If it rains for 2 days the tanks are full and spill gates are open.And if there is no rain for a few weeks, severe drought and we are begging for food from other countries.
