Ampara Wewa

Ampara Wewa
Ampara Wewa is a reservoir situated in Ampara town, Sri Lanka.

The present reservoir was constructed under the Pattipola Aru Scheme; now incorporated in the Gal Oya Scheme (Arumugam, 1969). It was restored in 1873 and improved in 1912 (Arumugam, 1969).

The reservoir is located in the Gal Oya River basin. Except the drainage from its own catchment area, a channel from the Konduwatuwana reservoir supplies water to the Ampara reservoir (Arumugam, 1969). The bund of the reservoir is about 1 mile long and the water is extending in an area of about 900 acres at its full supply level (Arumugam, 1969). The reservoir has 2 sluices and 2 spills (Arumugam, 1969).
