The supply of water for several areas in Colombo will be suspended for 11-hours starting at 10:00 pm tonight (Oct. 10), the National Water Supply and Drainage Board said.

Accordingly, water supply for Colombo 12, 13, 14, and 15 will be suspended from 10:00 pm tonight (Oct. 10) till 6:00 am on Sunday (Oct. 11).
