For many inhabitants in Jaffna, Sri Lanka, the quest for clean water has made every day life difficult. The water in the area’s open wells has been polluted and foul looking. Locals and environmentalists have complained to the authorities, leading to various investigations and the closure of a power station accused of causing oil leaks. However, there was no oil in the wells, concludes NGI.
