Maga Engineering announced the successful completion of the Galagedara-Mawathagama Water Supply Project. Valued at 3.1 Billion, the project was completed in mid-2020, after the completion of variations and extra works which augmented the distribution scheme by another 30km of pipelines.
The Galagedera-Mawathagama Water Supply Project is a large-scale rural water-supply scheme implemented by the National Water Supply and Drainage Board (NWSDB). The project aimed to provide pipe-borne water to 25,000 people in the eastern part of the Kurunegala District such as Mawathagama and Kurunegala Pradeshiya Sabha, and Galagedara, Thumpone, Paragahadeniya, and Mawathagama towns in the Kandy District. Maga Engineering executed the construction of a 1000m³ capacity elevated tower; a 450m³ capacity ground reservoir and associated electro-mechanical works; and supply and laying of 250mm diameter DI & HDPE transmission line for 27km; along with a 145 km long distribution system.
The project’s extensive distribution scheme covered the fast-growing town, suburban and rural areas of these two important districts of Sri Lanka, and will act as a catalyst for the region’s rapid economic development centered around agriculture. The project was financed by the DFCC bank under government’s local bank funded water supply projects, aiming to provide 100% coverage of potable water to Sri Lanka by the year 2025.
