Water supply Hemmathagama
Hemmathagama, Sri Lanka
The water distribution network has a capacity of 21,000 m3 per day. The mountainous terrain is a big advantage, as the height differences mean that the water supply can make use of gravity for distribution. No water pumps are required. This makes the execution less expensive and more more environmentally friendly. This environmental impact is considered essential for success.
"By delivering this clean, treated water supply to the families of Hemmathagama we expect to improve the socioeconomic prospects of this area", said Serkan Kumbasar, Project Manager at Ballast Nedam International. "That is what’s driving us to overcome any Covid-19 related obstacles to make sure that we deliver on time, and exceeding expectations."
