    It is observed that water interruptions happens so frequently within short intervals and mysteriously during the weekend holidays. I am at a loss to understand as to why the pipelines are bursting at a pace. A week ago water supply were suspended due to a burst at Labugama. And it has happened at Kalatuwewa. Is it a case of sabotage? If this is the cause, then it is time for the government to act speedily to prevent a repetition in the future.

    Pipeline pressures are increased to facilitate higher capacity, some older pipelines may not conform to its original specification to due to degradation over time.
