Dairy producer pollutes the Mahaweli (video) Featured

A private yogurt and cheese producer at Bogahawatte in Dimbula, Kotagala is causing major environmental damage by disposing its waste to the Mahaweli River, area residents charge.

No environmental safety measure is followed when sending the waste to Bogahawatte Canal which links with Kotmala Oya, a tributary of the Mahaweli.

Residents of estate houses located by the side of the canal say the waste has polluted the canal’s waters, emitting a very bad smell.

The factory produces yogurt and cheese that are marketed under different brands of other companies.
