Construction work on an irrigation project which will supply water to Pooneryn is in the final stage.
Water to this area is at present being supplied from the Iranamadu reservoir. The irrigation network from the reservoir will run through Waddakachchi, Thirunagar and Madarnagar areas. Plans are afoot to build an air-base in affiliation to the runway which was built by the LTTE in Iranamadu. The supply of medical services through the refurbished Mallawi hospital has also commenced. Accordingly, the resettled families now have facilities to obtain services from this hospital.
