The Hayleys Group through its environmental engineering services provider, Hayleys Puritas, has installed seven water filteration systems to meet the urgent need for clean drinking water in displaced and affected communities in the Rathnapura and Galle districts.

With a combined capacity of 33,600 litres/day, the treatment plants are estimated to provide clean, safe drinking water to serve the needs of approximately 13,440 people per day.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with all Sri Lankans who have been affected by the floods, and with the loved ones of those who have lost their lives in this terrible disaster. The Hayleys Group will work to provide whatever assistance it can in this difficult time and we wish to thank all Sri Lankans who have once again united and stepped forward to help our brothers and sisters in need.” Haycarb CEO Rajitha Kariyawasan said. Of the systems installed in Parana Thanayamngoda, Gonalagoda and Niyagama in the Mapalagama region, two of the water treatment systems had an installed capacity of 400 litres/hour and another two had a capacity of 200 litres/hour.

Three water treatment systems were installed in Kalwana in the Ratnapura district with capacities of 1,000 litres/hour, 400 litres/hour and 200 litres/hour with the largest capacity system being installed at a disaster management center to distribute purified water to the surrounding affected villages through a bowser with the assistance of the Army.
