Savutalele Settlement benefits from $365k water project

July 2, 2018 3:16 am

A hundred and ten residents of Savutalele settlement, off Princess Road in Tacirua, now have access to better water supply after the completion of hydraulic mains improvement works in their area.

Over the years, residents have relied on water supplied via an 80mm PVC line, but with the increase in population, the demand also increased.

This prompted the Water Authority to upgrade the existing 80mm main to a 100mm mPVC main line.

The $365,708 water project which was outsourced to Taviraki Building and Civil Works Limited saw the installation of the new, approximately 890metre pipeline, along with the installation of two air valves , a pressure regulating valve and two washout valves.

The project also saw the installation of four underground fire hydrants with standard concrete chambers.

WAF Chief Operating Officer, Samanmal Ekanayake says residents now enjoy a consistent supply of water that should withstand dry seasons, and an improved, water system performance.
