Western Megapolis with more than a million residents could pollute Kelani river | The Sunday Times Sri Lanka

Western Megapolis with more than a million residents could pollute Kelani river | The Sunday Times Sri Lanka: The Kelani river is one of the backbones of Sri Lanka’s economy providing livelihoods to persons who live in close proximity to the river where over 10,000 small and large scale business are located of which only 3000 such businesses have an environmental pollution licence to operate there, said Dr. Ananda Mallawatanthri, Country Representative of IUCN Sri Lanka at a technical session of the Biodiversity Program held at the Ramada Hotel Colombo last week. He said businesses operating without such a licence are more likely to pollute the water quality in the Kelani river. Around 70 tonnes of nitrogen pass through this river annually in which some of it is natural while some come from agro chemicals.

“When the oxygen level in the water gets depleted below 4 per cent it becomes less environmental friendly.” Around 25 per cent of the country’s population live in close proximity to the Kelani river and there is a strong need, obligation and responsibility to protect water quality for future generations. “We found that the level of bacteria found in the Kelani river is not acceptable for health standards. The Western region Megapolis development project could (further) pollute the water quality of the Kelani river considerably when one million people reside there.
