The newly constructed commercial and fisheries harbor.The commercial harbor has enough depth to handle ships up to 5,000 metric tons and the fishery harbor can hold more than 250 fishing boasts The environmental problems quickly increased in the past decades by the human activities. We are the most contributors to this problem due to industrial development and urban development, in the respect Oluvil port development is created more problems up to now. The development of Oluvil harbor project is made more problems in the nearest area of Oluvil. The coastal erosion is the one of major physical impact, identified in Oluvil area along. Before the port development, it does not have erosion but after the development it has eroded much higher level, than the previous level. The sea is retreated into the land area.
