Sluice gates of Kantale Tank have been reopened due to heavy rains.

The sluice gates of the Kantale Tank had been opened by nine inches due to heavy showers in the area. The Irrigation Department office says that 2,000 cubic feet of water per second was being released through the eight sluice gates to the main canals. Irrigation Engineer I. Kananthage said that water was being released towards the Left and Right Banks.  Our representative says that Trincomalee was experiencing heavy showers since last night.
