Sri Lanka is blessed with rich water resource but it is fast becoming a scarce resource. Urbanization and industrialization have caused the pollution of urban water ways while the intense use of agro chemicals and the discharge of domestic and industrial waste have polluted rural waterways. Eutropication is becoming a critical issue for many natural and artificial water bodies. Planned management of water resources is required to harmonize the multiple uses of water and to avert possible conflicts in the future.
