Two hundred and thirty residents on Vio Island will now have better access to a consistent water supply after a completion of a 650 meter, under sea pipeline was laid.
The pipeline was floated out to its full length before being pulled across to Vio Island, and then sunk to avoid any disruption to the shipping lane.
The $104, 617 project saw the installation and chambering of an air valve and master meter and the laying of the 100mm PVC pipeline works from the WAF depot at Vetari to the foreshore.
WAF’s General Manager for Planning, Design and Construction Nemani Waqanivalu says that nearly all households on the island are receiving water through their taps at home.
WAF says that they will continue to implement works that ensure Fijians have access to safe drinking water and proper sanitation.
