    really strange.....as some mentioned earlier we have seen remains of dried up maussakele ,victoria few days ago,now it has opened sluice gates........ If Electricity board taken measures to remove the mud during the dry season water storage would have increased....in Sri Laka all we can do is blame game,denying the responsibility,strikes with hardly any work.

    only couple of days ago they were warning of power cuts due drying up of reservoirs and now the reservoirs are over flowing....strange country !!!

    Bushel Monday, 09 July 2012 11:59 AM

    nalin fernando Monday, 09 July 2012 12:53 PM

    Just Another Citizen Monday, 09 July 2012 01:23 PM

    Lets hope the Met Dept. doesn't predict more rain, then it will all stop as usual.

    Godagampala Rohana Monday, 09 July 2012 01:29 PM

    Yes its a good news, but still 6-8 hour power cuts are on. Power & Energy Minister over to you.

    Lankashantha Monday, 09 July 2012 01:49 PM

    Remove the mud than sending out the water.

    Anjula Monday, 09 July 2012 04:53 PM

    what you said is very true. This is mysterious country, don't know what is reality. The conclusion is that today there is no proper maintenance in irrigation projects which need to let space in dam to have enough water storage during dry season. Administrators are only blaming to climate " No raining & have to cut power" .

    what ever the state run departments predict expect the opposite of it.
