Water supply to several areas in Colombo and the suburbs which were suspended from 6 pm yesterday following a burst in the pipeline would be continued till 3 pm today, the National Water Supply and Drainage Board (NWSDB) said.

Water supply in the areas of Dehiwala-Mt. Lavinia Municipal Council areas, Wellawatta, Kirulapone, Pamankada, Havelock Town, Bambalapitiya, Kollupitiya, Jayanthipura, Pelawatta, Mulleriyawa, Ambatale and Kohilawatte had been disrupted yesterday evening due to a burst in the pipeline carrying water to Dehiwala from Ambatale Water Refinery.

The water board said the maintenance works are still being carried out and they would hope to restore the water supply by 3.00 pm today.

    Repair and restore the water supply should not take more than 6 hours. NWSDB credibility is questionable. Using a spool supply can be restored within a couple of hours and in parallel repair can be executed.
