Protesting against water pollution

2013 Aug 01

More than 1000 people took to the streets obstructing the new Kandy Road at Weliweriya junction accusing the authorities of failing to resolve the ground water pollution that created a shortage of drinking water in several areas in the Gampaha District.

The protestors said the haphazard disposal of waste water from a factory resulted in this situation. Police have taken steps to divert traffic along byroads. (Upali Ranaweera)
