Abstract: "This paper focuses on the Walawe River basin, located in a semi-arid zone of southern Sri Lanka. The two major reservoirs in the upstream and middle reaches of the river with a total capacity of 486 million cubic meters (MCM) have significantly affected the hydrology of the river, with associated adverse environmental and social consequences."
