Water supply in the Nadi and Lautoka has been fully restored following the completion of the Emergency Water Shutdown at the Nagado Water Treatment Plant over the weekend.
Chief Operating Officer, Samanmal Ekanayake acknowledged the customers their understanding and taking heed of the short notice.
Ekanayake says they acted quickly to avoid catastrophic structural damage to the valve which could have resulted in a complete shutdown at Nagado leaving thousands of Fijians without water supply for a month or two.
He says it was a challenge for WAF in ensuring that the public had water during the disruption period.
He says another shutdown will be done to allow re-installation of the new Vanessa valves at the treatment plant in Nagado.
