Water Board warns fuel shortage may affect water supply

The National Water Supply and Drainage Board warned it may not be able to supply water to many areas of the island if it does not receive enough diesel to operate the power generators at its water treatment plants during power outages.

The ongoing fuel shortage has affected many sectors including local businesses and fuel queues are still evident in many parts of the country despite the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation’s (CEYPETCO) claim otherwise.

The demand for water has also grown due to the dry weather conditions in the island.

In the backdrop, the National Water Supply and Drainage Board has urged the public to use water sparingly.
