The villagers of Sautabu in Sigatoka will now have access to clean and safe drinking water.
This after Acting Prime Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum launched Project Aqua and Commissioned a new borehole in the village yesterday.
As part of project Aqua the drilling and installation of boreholes at each of these recipient communities will be done.
Sayed-Khaiyum urged the villagers to take care of the borehole.
“I would like to urge you to please look after what they have given you. Ensure that the pipes are looked after, ensure that there is no contamination within the system because ultimately this is yours and if it is yours you need to be able to look after that.”
The project which will cost $250, 000 is being funded by British American Tobacco Fiji.
After the completion of the pilot borehole in Sautabu village, the project will continue on to the other communities with a focus on tobacco farming areas of Nadi and Sigatoka.
