Project director of the Moragahakanda Multi-Purpose Project DB Wijerathna says that nobody wants to create any fear about the reported leak in the dam.

Earlier, the HIRU CIA program revealed a water leak in the upper area of the main dam of the reservoir.

The workers and the security guards had informed about the water leak as the reservoir reached maximum capacity following heavy rains in the last few weeks.

The main dam has been built by merging 25-meter cement cubic blocks and the ongoing investigations reveal that the leak is reported between two such blocks.

Meanwhile, the National Organizer of the All Ceylon Farmers Federation, Namal Karunarathna says that the reported water leak in the dam should not be taken for granted.

He says a report from an international experts group should be called in this regard.

    Very Irresponsible statement by the project director. How can he say that the leak would do no harm without carrying out risk and hazardous analysis by multi-disciplinary group who were involved in the project? If water penetrate the reinforced steel structure and over the period of time possible corrosion could cause a catastrophic failure.
