Thousands of people living along the Suva/Nausori corridor can expect a planned water shutdown from Tuesday next week.
This as a detailed inspection of the Clear Water Pump is scheduled to take place at the Waila Treatment Plant in Nausori to determine the root cause of excessive vibration occurring outside of the acceptable parameters.
