Navy installs another Water Treatment plant

[Sep 27 2016]


A water treatment plant (RO) was installed at the Sri Siddhartha Central College in Eppawala, Anuradhapura by the Sri Lanka Navy. The plant, produced by the Research and Development unit of the Navy was declared open on Monday (26th September)

According to navy media sources, this new RO system will provide safe drinking water to over four thousand children of the school and around 300 families in the area. Navy has installed the RO plant on a directive of the Commander of the Navy Vice Admiral Ravindra Wijegunaratne after the bund of the Eppawala Reservoir had been damaged during a flood and the people were facing a water crisis.

So far the navy has installed 27 RO plants across the island with a view of providing safe drinking water to people. These RO plants have benefitted over 10,000 school children and 16,000 families living in remote areas. Meanwhile four similar plants are to be set up at the Bhikku University in Anuradhapura on Tuesday (27th September) and University of Jaffna on Sunday (02nd October).

The ceremony was attended by the members of the Maha Sangha, Commander North Central Naval Area, Commodore Merril Wickramasinghe, senior naval officers, principal, staff, and children of Sri Siddhartha Central College and area residents.
