(2), based on remote sensing data at river basin scale, are 1 and 9% for Kelani and Gin Ganga respectively. The change of Δ W unsat on an annual basis for whole Sri Lanka is −33 mm, which fulfills the usual expectation that storage changes on an annual basis can be neglected (see Table 4).Cited by:   Kelani Ganga has been tapped in upper reaches for hydro-power generation. The Kalu Ganga in the Ratnapura District remains to be developed. A reservoir across Amban Ganga is also being built at Moragahakanda to provide drinking water to Anuradhapura and Trincomalee Districts and .

  The Region of the Megapolis encompasses the entire Western Province, from the Ma-Oya basin in the North to the Bentota Ganga basin in the South. A major portion of the country's economic activities and population is concentrated in this region within the Attanagalu Oya, Kalu Oya, Kelani River, Weras Ganga and Kalu Ganga basins.

Kelani river basin is the most industrialized and urbanized basin and it is exposing to point and non-point pollution sources. Project title: Medium to long-term multi-sector and multi-stakeholder strategy and action plan for the management and conservation of the Kelani River Basin Location: Western, Central and Sabaragamuwa Provinces in Sri Lanka (7 Districts) Duration: Project background: The Kelani River Basin is home to over 25% of the Sri Lankan population.

The river is the primary source of drinking water. supply scheme and they expended nearly 2% of. Kelani Ganga basin. detailed basin assessment, working document. C.”Earthtrends”Water Resources and statistical hand book, Ministry. Abstract: Kelani Ganga is the main source of water supply for domestic and industrial areas around Colombo, Sri Lanka.

An extraction rate of m3/s (mgd) is presently necessary at the Ambatale intake on the Kelani Ganga and it is planned to increase this to 12m3/s in the future to cater for the. Ganga basin, a sub-catchment of the Bolgoda basin, was selected as a priority project for feasibility study.

The Weras Ganga basin is shown in Figure Its catchment area is km2. PART II: MASTER PLAN 2. PRESENT CONDITIONS OF THE STUDY AREA Drainage Basins 4. The study area is divided into the following drainage basins as shown in Figure Kelani Ganga Basin The Kelani Ganga discharges into the sea at Colombo.

It has a drainage area of square miles and an average annual discharge of 5 million acre feet.* In volume of discharge, it is the third river in Ceylon, after the Mahaweli Ganga and Kalu Ganga. The river is subject to flooding in the Colombo area.

The maximum. Kalu Ganga, which is the second largest river basin in Sri Lanka, originates from the Adam’s Peak and falls to the Indian Ocean at the Kalutara District. Covering a breadth of 2,km 2 the river basin is home to a large population and provides many services such as water for drinking, agriculture, industries and many more.

PART II Flood Management Planning for Kelani, Kalu, Gin and Nilwara Rivers II (3) Development strategy of Malwala Dam At approximately 3 km upstream from the confluence with the Wey Ganga, Malwala Dam site is proposed. The dam scheme has been originally proposed by the Three Basin Master Plan (by ECI.

So let us examine the basin of the Walawe Ganga in detail. In this connection, it would help you a great deal if you could again refer to the Ancient Irrigation Works of Ceylon.

The maps there would be very helpful. Facing page 18 of part III you will find a map of the ancient irrigation scheme on the upper left bank of the Walawe Ganga. P.M.

Post Graduate Institute of Science, University of Peradeniya. pg KELANI GANGA FLOOD PROTECTION STUDY Introduction: The above flood protection scheme was designed around and construction commenced in by the Irrigation Department in order to protect the Colombo city and suburbs from frequent flooding.

Kelani Ganga is fed by its two main tributaries Seethawaka Ganga and Gurugoda Oya, the former joining Kelani Ganga near Talduwa and the latter near Ruwanwella. Hence, if a large reservoir is to be built to store surplus water received in the Kelani Basin on days of heavy rain, it has to be located downstream from their confluence.

The rainfall and stream flow stations used in this study are shown. Kelani Ganga is one of the main river basin in Sri Lanka which is currently experiencing large scale flooding and subsequent d am age to property and livelihoods.

Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvention Schemes Accelerated Irrigation Benefit Programme. AIBP was launched to give loan assistance to the States to help them complete some of the incomplete major/medium irrigation projects which were at an advanced stage of completion and to create additional irrigation potential in the country.

Kelani Ganga basin at Glencourse (Kelani Ganga sub basin) Kelani Ganga basin is located in the wet zone of Sri Lanka between the latitudes 6° 45' and 7° 15' N, Longitudes 79° 50’ and 80° 45'E.

Sub basin of the Kelani Ganga at Glencourse was selected for this study. Total catchment area is about km2 at Glencourse (Kelani Ganga sub. Flooding of Kelani Ganga has serious consequences as the outfall being near the capital city of Colombo.

When the flood level of Kelani Ganga is between 5 and 7 ft. the flood is defined as a major flood and when it exceeds 9 ft. the flood is considered to be dangerous.

The Gin Ganga flood protection scheme was launched in with the. The Ganga basin is a part of the Ganges-Brahmaputra basin draining 1, square kilometres in Tibet, Nepal, India and Bangladesh.

To the north, the Himalaya or lower parallel ranges beyond form the Ganges-Brahmaputra divide. On the west the Ganges Basin borders the Indus basin and then the Aravalli ridge. Southern limits are the Vindhyas and Chota Nagpur Plateau.

On the east the Ganges. National Ganga River Basin Project P Procurement Plan for FY I. General 1. Project information Country: India Borrower: Government of India Project Name: National Ganga River Basin Project (NGRBP) Project I.D.: P Credit No.: IDAIN and IBRDINFile Size: KB.

Kelani river originates in the central hills near Horton Plains National Park and Peak Wilderness Sanctuary. The basin is located in northern latitudes from 6°47–7°05′ and eastern longitudes from 79°52–80°13′ (Kottagoda & Abeysingha, ).). Approximate extent of the basin is km 2 (Survey Department of Sri Lanka, ).

The Kelani river is km in length and it originates Cited by: 6. This is the Interim “Ganga River Basin Management Plan”. The thrust of this Plan is to relate the diverse environmental degradations occurring in the basin with their causal factors, and thereby frame a roadmap for redeeming National River Ganga Basin’s Environment.

The task involved different thematic groups of experts from 7 IITs and.Flood Alert: Water Level Rising In Kelani River, Public Advised To Evacuate "News Group withdrew its compensation scheme ingiving no proper explanation for this move and has failed to compensate victims despite all attempts by lawyers to settle cases out of court." procedures perhaps outlined in the rule books, etc.these.Hydrology.

The Kelani River has two main tributaries in its upper reaches: the Kehelgamu Oya and the Maskeli Oya. These two contribute to hydro-electric production in Sri Lanka, housing several major reservoirs, ponds and power stations.

Castlereigh Reservoir and Norton Reservoir are constructed across the Kehelgamu Oya, while Maskeliya Reservoir, Canyon Reservoir and Laxapana Reservoir are Country: Sri Lanka.
