Notice issued to water consumers
The National Water Supply and Drainage Board urges the public to use water sparingly until the upcoming Sinhala and Tamil New Year.
General Manager Thilina Wijetunga told the Hiru News team that a water shortage has arisen due to the prevailing dry weather.
However, he added that no decision has been taken so far to impose water cuts.
Meanwhile, the Meteorological Department states that heavy showers and winds exceeding 75 mm are expected in many parts of the island from today.
Met Department Director Athula Karunanayake told the Hiru News team that this situation could continue for the next three days
