Grace period to pay water bills for those under quarantine

Consumers under quarantine or curfew or living in isolated areas have been given a grace period to pay their water bills, Water Supply Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara said.

Addressing a media briefing in Colombo on Saturday (7), the Minister said water bills had to be paid as usual.

“But, those living in areas under isolation or families under quarantine who are not in a position to pay their water bills right away, have been given the opportunity to pay it when possible.”

Minister Nanayakkara had also noted that the government alone cannot take responsibility for the control of the COVID-19 virus.
