Mahaweli-H Zone to benefit by mid-November

Farmers around the reservoir of Kala Wewa in the Mahaweli-H Zone will be able to receive water from the Mahaweli irrigation system for their fields by mid-November. The Mahaweli Authority of Sri Lanka (MASL) is renovating a sluice gate to control the flow of water from the reservoir to the major irrigation canal.

The twin reservoir complex having a capacity of 100,000-acre-feet built by King Dhathusena during the 5th century to provide water to crop fields around Kala Wewa, Anuradhapura is the current major water resource of the Mahaweli H Zone.
