The National Water Supply and Drainage Board (NWSDB) announced that the water supply to several regions would be cut off owing to an unexpected failure of a main water distribution pipe.
The pipe in question is responsible for the distribution of water from the Kalatuwawa Reservoir.
Accordingly, the areas of Maharagama, Boralesgamuwa, Kottawa, Pannipitiya, Rukmalgama, Pelenwatta, Maththegoda, Homagama, Meepe and Padukka will be affected by the water restriction.
The water cut will remain in place till 4.00 am tomorrow (29), the NWSDB stated.
The Board also issued an apology to the public who are inconvenienced by the water cut, and requested that the affected populaces render their support by utilizing water sparingly until the issue was resolved.
