Rehabilitation of Hinpankandura Rajapilla
Heelpankandura and Rajapihilla rehabilitation is planned to improve the city’s major drainage infrastructures and flood control system. The sub project involves rehabilitation and redesigning of the existing upstream canals to improve storm water conveyance on the one hand and reduce flash floods on the other. The identified streams are located upstream the Kandy Lake to which they drain. They flow down steep terrain and pass through narrow sections resulting in high velocity of water and floods in certain areas during heavy rain.
The sub-project will directly benefit the population totaling 350 persons including in particular the residents of about 55 households around the identified locations together with 10 households that experience storm water generated floods from time to time.
