The Sri Lankan government established the National Water Supply and Drainage Board (NWSDB) in 1974. The NWSDB has been implementing rural water supply programmes since 1970’s and then with the initiative of the Water Decade, the facilities were expanded. This initiative had given ample opportunities to NWSDB to experiment with various Strategies and Methodologies for implementing RWSS programmes. . The project had already introduced and applied innovative strategies aiming towards sustainable management. Its main feature was bottom to top approach. In this mechanism the following committees were also established:
