Preparation towards the major planned water shutdown in the Western Division has been finalized.
Water Authority of Fiji’s Board Director Kamal Gounder says all necessary checks have been conducted in preparation for the shutdown.
Gounder says they have mobilized the operations teams in the West and final checks have been conducted.
He says WAF is ready to undertake the repair works at the Nagado Water Treatment Plant in Nadi.
Goundar says it’s of great importance for this repair to take place in order for WAF to continue to supply clean drinking water to residents in the West.
He says they will ensure that during the disruption period there will be minimal interruption to major services such as hospitals, airport, schools and hotels with more than 100 water trucks expected to be delivered and placed in strategic areas.
The areas affected will be the entire Nadi area and parts of Lautoka, excluding the Lautoka Central Business District and some outer boundaries supplied through the Buabua and Saru Water Treatment Plants.
The water shutdown will take place from 1pm Saturday until 5pm next Tuesday.
