137 renovated reservoirs irrigate no land

No land has been cultivated by using the waters of 137 reservoirs that were renovated last year, says the Ministry of Agriculture.

Under a project to remove silt from reservoirs, the Agrarian Development Department spent Rs. 115.73 million to renovate the reservoirs.

These reservoirs are located in the Colombo, Kalutara, Polonnaruwa, Killinochchi and Batticaloa districts.
