Water Consumption Surges by 15% Amid Arid Conditions

March 13, Colombo (LNW): With arid weather prevailing, water consumption in the region has surged by 15%, prompting the National Water Supply and Drainage Board to announce low-pressure water supply to higher ground and outermost areas of water projects. While water cuts have not been enforced in any region thus far, the Board urges residents to use water judiciously.

The Department of Meteorology predicts the continuation of dry weather conditions into the next month, with intermittent showers expected. However, these showers are not anticipated to provide sufficient rainfall to alleviate the arid conditions. Ajith Wijemanna, the Director of the Department of Meteorology, emphasized that the dry spell is likely to persist until the onset of the South Western monsoon.

In light of the increased water consumption and the prolonged dry period, authorities are urging the public to adopt water-saving measures to ensure sustainable usage during these challenging conditions.
