Minister of Environment Mahinda Amaraweera had ordered a comprehensive investigation into earth tremors reported from time to time around the Victoria Reservoir in Kandy, Chairman of the Geological Survey and Mines Bureau Anura Walpola said. 

He said although four minor tremors were reported around Kandy on Sunday only one tremor was reported from the interior of the earth. 
“Sensors mounted on the Victoria Reservoir dam did not record tremors,” he said.
The Chairman said that the other three tremors were not reported from the interior of the earth, based on Victoria Reservoir sensors. 
“Therefore, the tremors may not have occurred internally, but it should have occurred exterior of the earth,” he said. 
“However, the facts regarding these cannot be not taken lightly and an extensive investigation is being carried out using experts from various fields regarding these occasional tremors,” Mr Walpola said. 


The University of Peradeniya, the Geological Survey and Mines Bureau, as well as the Mahaweli Authority are to be consulted for this purpose on the instructions of the Minister of Environment. 


He said the report of the panel of experts would focus on dolomite mining and related explosions and would take further action based on the report. BLURB
