Pipe borne water network distributed water from Labugama, Kalatuwawe & Ambatale. Water supply is carried out by National Water Supply & Drainage Board. Water storage tank of the area has 8000 m3 capacity. 24 hours water supply is there without any under pressure circumstances or interruption of supply.
Due to the high density of population and pollution of ground water due improper discharge of industrial waste in most parts of the municipal area, ground water can not be used for drinking purposes although there is rich and continuous aquifer. Therefore people have to rely on pipe borne water. At present the entire municipal area is covered by pipe borne water. However, individual connections are not available within some of the law income settlements. The NWSDB has provided 512 stand posts within the municipal area for the benefit of low income communities and the general public. (Map JPG / PDF)
