Title: Maintenance of the Water Reservoir Katawewa
The overgrown dam of the water reservoir Kotawewa in the bush forest of Sri Lanka was revitalized to supply the surrounding area. Through the reconstruction and improvement of the reservoir, additional water is provided for drinking and agriculture. The sprawled plants were cut, the basin deepened, the dam elevated and the damaged structure repaired. A new floodgate had to be installed to regulate the water delivery to the fields. Many of these actions were realized by the local villagers; the technical realization of the work was overseen by the Swarna Hansa Foundation.
