Rotary Club of Colombo Mid Town together with Rotary Club of Wariyapola and with the support of Rotary Club of Falkoping in Sweden, rehabilitated and vested 3 village irrigation tanks on 21st January 2023.
Scope of work involved de silting of tanks, repairing sluice gates, reconstructing “Anicut” rehabilitating “Tank Bund”etc.
Farmers were trained in maintaining the irrigation tanks and made aware of the economical use of water in cultivation.
The three tanks are;
– Karagaswewa,Kuda wewa
– Tissawa Maha Wewa
– Kudalugahamula Wewa alias Timbirigahamula Wewa
The rehabilitation of irrigation tanks were funded through a “Global Grant” by Rotary Foundation. Project will directly benefit over 100 farmer families. This project will ensure sufficient water supply to facilitate paddy cultivation in both seasons thereby improving the yield, benefitting the farmers economically.
Rotary Club of Colombo Mid Town greatly appreciate and acknowledge the support of Rotary Club of Wariyapola and Rotary Club of Falkoping which enabled the successful completion of this project.
