Following heavy rains in the Norton Bridge area, two sluice gates of the Lakshapana reservoir and six gates of the Wimalasurendra reservoir were opened this morning, after the water level had reached spilling level. (Pix by Ranjith Rajapaksa)
Easy come easy go! with the shortest rainfall reservoir get filled up and after a couple of weeks without rain it vanishes. This is a result of silt accumulation. Thus desilting of reservoirs have to be done to solve water shortages. Why i wonder this is not realised by the relevant authorities?
