President Maithripala Sirisena Green Soil Port 700 01

President Maithripala Sirisena graced the event held at the Polonnaruwa Buddhi Mandapaya on Saturday, June 22 to introduce the concept of Green Soil Port.

Under the concept of Green Sand Port, the rivers and river basins are protected. According to this method, an area of 10 feet between the river and the river bank will be called a green zone and will consists of tree plantation. It leaves a 3 feet road leading to the sand ferry. This system does not allow the tractors to go down the river and the sand mining is carried out according to proper standards. Meanwhile, ferries used for sand mining should be engine-free. The Green Sand concept has already been introduced and those who do not follow it will not be issued with sand permits.

The Mayor of Polonnaruwa Mr. Chanaka Sidath Ranasinghe and the Chairman of the Geological Survey and Mines Bureau Mr. Asela Iddawela were also present on this occasion.
