The Water Board said water supply would be interrupted due to an urgent repair at the Ambatale Water Purification Centre.

Accordingly, the water supply to Colombo, Dehiwala, Mt. Lavinia, Kotte, Kaduwela Municipal Council areas, Maharagama, Boralesgamuwa, Kolonnawa Urban Council areas,  Kotikawatta and Mulleriyawa would be suspended.

    Well, these things have to be done since we always grumble about poor maintenance.

    Every since this Govt took over, we have had several water cuts or power cuts....if there were grave problems then these cuts were not done in the past. 18 hours is a long time especially for people with children or elderly parents or patients.

    people should stop grumbling and fix a reserve water tank in their homes. Worth the money especially when you are living in Colombo.
