The Towns-East Water Supply Project aims to supply potable water to rapidly growing towns surrounding Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo. The project is in line with the Government’s objectives of providing purified sustainable drinking water while modernising suburban and peri-urban water infrastructure.
MAGA is involved in the construction of an 18,000m3 capacity ground reservoir, 18Km long transmission & distribution system, and other civil works of the project.
Once complete, the project would strengthen infrastructure, improve services in water-supply and wastewater management, and support economic development and environmental management in alignment with the Government’s development plans. The project is also expected to reduce water losses and result in energy savings by utilising available heads in gravity transmission mains from the Labugama and Kalatuwawa treatment plants.
After completion, the project is expected to benefit over 375,000 people and provide over 91,000 water supply connections to Colombo and its suburbs by 2040.
