National hospitals polluting Beira and Kandy lakes

National hospitals are polluting the Beira and Kandy lakes, Minister Champika Ranawaka told Parliament today.

He said that the Colombo National hospital is one reason for the Beira lake being polluted and the Kandy General hospital is part of the reasons behind the Kandy lake being polluted.

The Minister said both hospitals dump waste in the lake which damage the environment.

He said an effective garbage disposal system must be put in place to deal with the garbage in Colombo. (Colombo Gazette)
