Provincial Councils and Local Government Minister Faiszer Musthapha said his ministry has decided to repair Colombo’s waste-water infrastructure and modernize the system with funds from the European Investment Bank (EIB).  
He said the waste-water infrastructure in Colombo is very old and has not been repaired since it was constructed. “Even with the increase in the population, no attention has been paid to upgrade it and as such the people are facing many difficulties,” the minister said.  
An European Investment Bank delegation which arrived to Sri Lanka a few days ago held discussions on this matter at the ministry.  
The discussions with the EIB were attended by the Ministry’s Additional Secretaries Sujan Nanayakkara and Naimudeen.  
After the discussion they carried out a field visit to check out the places relevant to this project.
