Irrigation & Water Resources

RDC has carried out projects in the Irrigation and Water Resources sector from the very inception of the firms’ operation. The experience associated with the study and rehabilitation of Sri Lanka’s ancient irrigation systems, coupled with the modern-day investments in large scale hydro dams and land settlement schemes has given RDC’s consultants an in-depth understanding of the issues and opportunities in this field.

A variety of service delivery combinations can be provided in the sector, inclusive of feasibility studies, design, construction supervision, project management, along with financial and institutional strengthening of associated institutions and agencies. RDC’s experts are equipped with knowledge in new technology for modelling and simulating exercises where necessary for effective project delivery.

Review and investigation into environmental impacts, catchment and water management are part of RDC’s portfolio of services in the sector. The range of services further include specific agricultural user requirements such as assessment of crop water and drainage requirements, design of irrigation systems, sub-surface drainage systems, flood protection, control structures, pumping stations and other appurtenant structures associated with irrigation schemes.

As part of management strengthening inputs in the sector, RDC has provided training and institutional analysis to strengthen line agency operations, ensuring cost efficient and effective service delivery.
