Newly constructed Delft Pier and Nallinakkapuram water supply project declared open

[March 12 2017]

The newly constructed Jetty in Delft Island was declared open on Saturday (11th March). The Jetty was declared open by Commander of the Navy Vice Admiral Ravindra Wijegunaratne in the presence of senior state officials. According to Naval media sources the Jetty has been constructed by the Sri Lanka Navy, upon a request by the Hon. Governor of the Northern Province with financial assistance from the Ministry of Prison Reforms, Rehabilitation, Resettlement and Hindu Religious Affairs through the Jaffna District Secretary.

Work on the Jetty began in November last year (2016). The new Jetty which has a depth between 6 to 8 feet will enable fishing trawlers, passenger ferries and the sea ambulance to be safely secured alongside. The first stage of the project will see a 101 feet long and 31 feet wide pier being completed.

The 'Nallinakkapuram' purified water supply project, which will provide drinking water to the Keerimalai housing project was also declared open by the Navy Commander yesterday. The RO (Reverse Osmosis) plant and the 60,000 liter capacity water tank constructed under the project will benefit fifty families in Nallinakkapuram to draw safe drinking water to their day to day requirements. The Navy Commander also declared open the new pier at SLNS Kanchadewa during his visit to the North.

Senior state officials, naval officers and a large number of local residents were also present at the occasion.
