Cabinet approves completion of Kirindi Oya project

The Cabinet of Ministers yesterday (29) granted approval for the completion of the Kirindi Oya Water Supply project, which has now been entrusted to the National Water Supply and Drainage Board.

The emergency upgrading project of the water refinery plant of Kirindi Oya was entrusted to the State Engineering Corporation by the previous Ministry of Housing last year. However, the project had not been completed, resulting in extreme difficulties for the community in the area due to the inability to obtain sufficient water.

Therefore, the Cabinet approved the proposal tabled by the Prime Minister, as the Minister of Urban Development and Housing, to entrust the responsibility of re-implementing this project to the National Water Supply and Drainage Board with immediate effect.
