National Award for Construction Performance 2019 

 The successful completion of the Vavuniya Surface Water Dam earned KDAW another National Performance award at the National Construction Awards 2019.

As part of the Asian Development Bank’s Dry Zone Urban Water & Sanitation projects, this iconic project was completed in 36 months with hopes to provide clean drinking water to over 200,000 people in the region.

Key highlights of this project include the construction of a surface water dam with a net catchment area of 42 and a 3km long crest. Being a sustainable construction project, it consisted the reforestation of 415 acres of vegetation with over 300,000 plants and also the protection of endangered flora and fauna species in this dry zone area.

We take this opportunity to thank the National Water Supply & Drainage Board, and all other parties who ensured the timely completion of this project with whom we share this prestigious award.
