Navutu families get clean water
February 6, 2016 8:12 pm
People of Navutu in Nadroga will now have consistent and adequate access to water.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama opened the Navutu Groundwater Reticulation Project yesterday, which cost over $39, 000 to build.
The community has been relying on a nearby creek to keep hydrated and stay clean.
Bainimarama says sourcing water from a creek is not only inconvenient; it’s unreliable and also extremely unhealthy.
The people used to get affected during dry spells as well, however this will be a thing of the past now.
The new reticulation system will serve not only the eleven families nearby, but also two churches – in total, benefitting over 100 people.
Previous attempts have been made to provide a reticulation system in the past, however they were not successful.
Bainimarama says the days of poor construction and costly maintenance are over, and the Government will keep a close eye on this project so it fulfils its vital purpose for Navutu.
