Eight hour water cut to be imposed in Colombo and its suburbs


An eight hour water cut will be imposed in certain areas around Colombo and its suburbs from 8 p.m. on Saturday till 4 a.m. on Sunday.

The National Water Supply and Drainage Board says that the cause of the water cut is the repair of the main water line connecting the Kolonnawa pump house to Moragasmulla.

As a result, the cut will affect Moragasmulla, Obeysekarapura, Bandaranayakapura, Rajagiriya, Nawala, and Nawala Road between Rajagiriya and the Open University.

In addition to that, the water cut will affect Parliament Road between the Poldoowa junction and Ayurveda junction, and all by-roads in between.

The board also said that water supply to Cotta road, Castle Street, and Lake Drive will be distributed under low pressure from 8 p.m tomorrow.
