A 48- hour water cut will be imposed in several areas in Colombo from Friday to Sunday, due to construction work being carried out at the Battaramulla-Polduwa Bridge, the National Water Supple and Drainage Board said.

The NWSDB said the water cut was to facilitate the connection of the new Ambatale- Dehiwela pipeline to the Battaramulla- Polduwa main line.

The water supply will be suspended from 10.00 p.m. on Friday (20) to 10.00 p.m. on Sunday (22) in the areas of Dehiwala- Mount Lavinia Municipal area, Soysapura, Kotikawatta -Mulleriyawa, Mulleriyawa North, Battaramulla, Pelawatte, Colombo 4, 5, and 6.

Apart from this water cut, the Water Board informed that Colombo 3 and 7 will be subject to a water supply at low pressure.

    Should have given adequate time for residents to stock water.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Friday, 20 June 2014 12:20 PM

    This is totally absurd. Short notice but cutting water for 48 hours is too long. Before taking this decision, did you sit and discuss the gravity of the general public? Its a crazy decision.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Friday, 20 June 2014 12:22 PM

    We can wait without eating for 48 hours Mann, but without water how we can manage. Who the hell took this crazy decision?

    Kiris Baba Amaray Friday, 20 June 2014 12:28 PM

    Ofcourse, are the Water Board Authorities are humans or Animals?

    I think 48 hours without water is too long to sustain. Specially in colombo with the current weather. Most of the houses had least 3 to 4 occupants in them. I can't imagine how hard this is going to be for them.

    Can't the water and drainage board have little gap in between within this 48 hours? So that will give the people sometime.

    It will be worse for those who don't have stock tang to stock water. I have lived in Soyzapura Flats have suffered even for small water cuts those days.

    Going to make some call to my friends over to stock water.

    LOOKS LIKE SOME POLITICIANS ARE GOING TO PROCESS BOTTLED WATER OR IMPORT FOREIGN WATER.

    And they have to do this on the weekend when we at home? What ever happened to common sense in the country?

    Mango Friday, 20 June 2014 10:52 AM

    48 hours? this is a human rights violation

    ibadun Friday, 20 June 2014 10:27 PM

    Do not ask silly questions. This must be the Hon. Minister's decision. We should obey this.
