Navy installs 6 water treatment plants

Navy installs 6 water treatment plants

[Dec 19 2016]

Six water treatment plants (Reverse Osmosis) produced by the Sri Lanka Navy were installed in several locations in Anuradhapura, Vavuniya and Chilaw areas recently. Accordingly, these six RO plants were installed at Anuradhapura and Chilaw Police Stations, Kappachchi and Mahakachchikudi Purana Gallen Viharaya in Vavuniya, Periya Ulukkulama Mamaduva Rajamaha Viharaya and Sri Sarananda Maha Piriwena in Anuradhapura.

With the installation of these six, the total number of RO plants produced and installed by the Navy' Research and Development Unit totals 71. These water treatment plants are installed in areas prone to chronic kidney disease. The programme is mainly supported by the Presidential Task Force on Prevention of Chronic Kidney Disease. A number of state and private sector entities have also extended support to the project.

On a previous occasion two Reverse Osmosis (RO) plants were declared open in Kosgoda in Balapitiya and at the Mullaitivu Police Station on 13th December. The Navy also carries out awareness programmes to educate the public on Chronic Interstitial Nephritis in Agricultural Communities (CINAC) to coincide with the installation of RO plants.

Sri Lanka Navy commenced this community welfare programme in December 2015 under the direction of Commander of the Navy Vice Admiral Ravindra Wijegunaratne, with the aim of producing and installing 50 RO plants. The first two plants were installed in Poonewa and Kadawathrambewa on 22nd December (2015). Within a year the Navy has surpassed its intended goal and has by now produced and installed more than 70 RO plants providing safe drinking water to over 33,000 families and 25,000 school children.
