Hotels releasing refuse water to hospital premises, DMO charges

Hotel owners around the Angunakolapelessa Base Hospital are accused of releasing refuse water to the hospital premises, creating a health threat to patients and hospital staffers, according to Angunakolapelessa DMO Dr. Jayasiri Mallikarachchi.

He said during rainy days, an unbearable foul smell emanates from the hospital premises due to this unruly act.

The DMO said this was an issue that prevailed for a considerable period and that it has been impossible to clean the mortuary of the hospital during rainy days because the entire premises get inundated.

The DMO said successive DMOs have tried to solve this issue while being on good terms with hotel owners but it has proved futile.
