Attention drawn to building lakes to overcome floods

May 31, 2010 7:02:28 AM - itnnews.lk

The President has been considering the construction of lakes as a solution to floods in Colombo.

Authorities are concentrating on the building of lakes on locations where water logging is experienced to prevent areas in Colombo getting inundated. Accordingly President Rajapaksa has drawn his attention to building lakes at Kotikawatta, Kolonnawa and Gothatuwa. The programme is to be undertaken on a proposal made by Western Provincial Councillor Renuka Perera.
