Nadi and Lautoka residents advised to use water sparingly

December 6, 2019 4:25 pm
People living in Nadi and Lautoka have been advised by the Water Authority of Fiji to use water sparingly as the Vaturu Dam is currently facing low water levels.

People living in Nadi and Lautoka have been advised by the Water Authority of Fiji to use water sparingly as the Vaturu Dam is currently facing low water levels.

Speaking during a press conference in Nadi today, General Manager WAF Customer Services Sekove Uluinayau says the current level at the Vaturu Dam is 521m compared to their healthy level of 527m.

“At the moment what we want or require is around 2,000mm of rain within the next three months or even 1,000mm within a month to replenish the levels at Vaturu Dam so it could revert back to its safe level of 525m or 527m.”

The dam supplies water to the whole of Nadi and seventy-five percent of Lautoka.

Uluinayau says WAF has also put in place a contingency plan should there be any unplanned water disruptions.

Acting Director Fiji Meteorological Services Teri Atalifo says the low levels at the dam has been caused by the hot and dry weather conditions in the Western Division.
