Part of: Water Power '87


As part of Sri Lanka's medium term investment programme funded mainly by the World Bank and Asian Development Bank, the British Government's Overseas Development Administration is supporting a programme for the rehabilitation of the mini-hydro projects. The programme started in 1986 and the appointed consultants were Salford Civil Engineering Ltd and Binnie and Partners in a joint venture. The paper describes the state of affairs that existed, the way the problems have been tackled, the investigation undertaken and the first-stage proposals made and now to be implemented. The paper describes some of the hydrological techniques that have been developed, the step-by-step appraisal methods designed and how detailed costs and benefits have been evaluated with the help of the local estate managers.
