Drinking water quality

Lack of safe drinking water is a major issue in modern world including Sri Lanka. Approximately 75% of the population of Sri Lanka lives in a rural environment with close association with immediate physical environment. The chemistry of the ground water must therefore, have an important bearing on the health of the population.

Geochemically the ground water in these areas in generally of the Na/K type with the Cl (Calcium) sub type predominating possibly due to the increasing drought conditions and salt build up. The total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and the electrical conductivity are also correspondingly high. A unique feature of the dry zone is that in a large number of areas, the fluoride levels in the ground water is higher than the recommended danger levels of the World Health Organization (WHO).

What is CKDu in Sri Lanka?

In Sri Lanka, chronic kidney disease of unknown aetiology (CKDu) has become a major health issue over the past two decades. This is a different form of kidney disease, which is NOT associated with conventional risk factors such as diabetes and hypertension. The root cause of CKDu has not been definitively established yet – hence it is referred to as ‘CKD unknown/uncertain aetiology’. Initially affecting several rural communities around North Central and Uva Provinces of Sri Lanka, CKDu is now prevalent in North Western, Eastern, Southern and Central provinces, and parts of the Northern Province of the island.

According to the World Health Organization, approximately 15% of the population in Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Badulla Districts between the age group 15-70 years are affected by CKDu. Although majority of those affected are male paddy farmers and agricultural laborers, there are now a growing number of women and children being affected by CKDu. The WHO believes that this unknown CKD is an environmental-exposure disease caused by multiple factors such as chronic exposure to kidney damaging pesticides, arsenic, lead, cadmium, poor diet and genetic susceptibility to kidney failure. It is also in Nicaragua, El Salvador & even India. It is now being increasingly recognized as chronic agrochemical related Kidney disease.
