Prevention of Coastal Erosion in Ampara district

Prevention of Coastal Erosion
As it takes a long time to implement long term measures Ports and Shipping Minister Arjuna Ranatunga has proposed to implement short term solutions such as pileup sand heap along the beach and placing rock barriers with the cooperation of the Coast Conservation and Coastal Resources Management Department was approved by the cabinet of ministers.

A committee has already been appointed according to a proposal by Minister of City Planning and Water Supply Rauff Hakeem to study the coastal erosion in an area of about 550m on the northern area of the Oluvil harbour  in the Ampara district and to make recommendations on long term solutions and to provide relief to the affected people.

Sri Lanka Ports Authority has commenced the conservation of about 150m while conservation of the balance too should start immediately.
