Fijians living in Lautoka and Nadi will experience interruptions to their water supply at the end of this month.
This comes after the Water Authority stated that they will be carrying out works at the Nagado Water Treatment plant in Nadi.
According to WAF, works at the treatment plant will begin on the 29th of September to the 2nd of October and at the same date interruptions will be from 1am Saturday morning until midnight Tuesday.
The areas affected will be the whole Nadi area and certain areas in Lautoka, excluding the Lautoka City Centre and some outer boundaries of Lautoka that are supplied through the Buabua and Saru Water Treatment Plants.
WAF Board Chairman, Bhavesh Kumar is advising the public to start storing water for at least four days.
Kumar says to sufficiently satisfy water requirements over the shutdown period each household should store at least 200 litres of water for drinking and cooking purposes.
