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.
