Nearly one hundred persons have taken oil in containers from the spot where the oil leak took place in Orugodawatte, some employees attached to Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) charged today.

The President of the Jathika Sevaka Sangamaya (JSS) CPC Branch Ananda Palitha told the Daily Mirror Online that nearly 100 persons had taken aviation oil from KambikuduwaWatte in Orugodawatte this morning.

He said the some have taken as much as 15 liters.

He said there had been several leakages in the same location for the last seven years and the pipe lines have been patched with rubber.

Palitha said this was a temporary measure, which would not stop the leakages permanently.

However, new authorities from the CPC, who visited the site, had assured that new pipeline would be laid soon.(YP)

    That says it all for the nation, a highly volatile fuel pipeline passing on the surface through a highly populated area patched by the CPC with rubber band-aids.And nobody has done anything about it for years or any maintenance. Ate the very least it should be concrete coated pipe but preferably pipe in pipe.I pity the Sri Lankan people for the ineptitude of previous administrations.

    The cost to clean this environmental disaster is 20 times the cost of a new pipeline. driving hybrids, planting trees and using solar is does to lessen the damage that these types of disasters cause. Instead of spending so many millions on those useless projects, spend money and quality pipeline infrastructure, and waste management centers. It would be 1000 times more beneficial for us.
