Recycling water Policies
Despite the fact that Sri Lanka receives a heavy rainfall and inherits massive freshwater bodies, drinking water is becoming a scarce resource here. Sri Lanka has water in many rivers and lakes suitable for drinking in many parts of the country. Ground water was completely clean. Three decades later, while most running water has become polluted, ground water in most urban areas and some rural areas is polluted with either industrial effluent, pesticides or sewage.
