The agreement between the National Water Supply and Drainage Board (NWSDB) and the CMEC-BPPE Joint Venture for the construction of the Water Supply and Sanitation Project, was signed recently at the NWSDB head office in Ratmalana.

Chairman, NWSDB, K.M. Anzar said that around 300,000 people in the Jaffna-Kilinochchi areas will benefit from this project.

The Jaffna Kilinochchi Water Supply and Sanitation Project has been identified by the National Water Supply and Drainage Board (NWSDB) as a priority urban water supply project to be implemented under the Asian Development Bank (ADB) - AFD and GOSL assistance due to social needs as well as government policy towards provision of infrastructure facilities to Northern Province war-torn areas.

This project which will cover a main portion of the Jaffna peninsula, Punagary and Palai areas, is estimated to cost Rs. 2.89 billion (approx US$ 21.25 million) for the supplying and laying of treated water transmission mains and construction of three treated water sumps at Kaliundai, Pungudativu and Poonakary.

The project which includes the construction of three ground water reservoirs at Kaliundai, Punguditivu, and Poonakary, laying of water transmission pipelines in Jaffna and the Killinochchi districts and to Nagadeepa, Elinathive and Aunathive islands is due to be completed in July 2018.
