Water-Management-System-700-01

City Planning and Water Supply Minister Leader of Sri Lanka Muslim Council Rauff Hakeem inaugurated a major wastewater management system first of its kind in the Negombo area. The Rs. 20 billion project will take four years to construct, and is funded with support from the European Union, French Agency for Development and Sri Lankan Government.

Addressing the event, Minister Rauff Hakeem observed that one of the main ideas in providing this infrastructure is to preserve our beautiful landscape and leave the water resources for the successive generations of posterity. Negombo lagoon and the ocean have progressively been subjected to heavy pollution because of non- availability of a proper waste disposal system in this important city. The new wastewater treatment would not only help preserve marine resources, but also protect human health by securing safe drinking water and a clean environment.

French Ambassador Jean-Marine Schuch, National Water Supply and Drainage Board Chairman Alahudeen Ansar and others were present.
