Naval divers attached to the Eastern Naval Command, started a successful diving operation to salvage a sunken bulldozer at the Kalu Ganga reservoir, Laggala, in the Matale district last week.

This bulldozer used in the construction work could not be withdrawn from the site due to the increasing water levels in the ‘Kalu ganga’ reservoir and the machine which weighs nearly 28 tons, was submerged to a depth of about seven feet by October 23 2018. The Naval diving team which comprised of officers and senior and junior divers attached to the Command Diving Unit (East), worked together to lift the submerged bulldozer amidst severe difficulties.
