Republic of the Fiji Navy divers are helping the Water Authority of Fiji re-connect the underwater pipes supplying water from Lekutu to Galoa Island, Bua.
The system was severely damaged at the height of TC Yasa almost a month ago.
Late last week, the National Disaster Management Office’s rescue vessel Ai Talai -which is under the care of the Fiji Navy arrived to help the divers.
The capabilities provided by the vessel will give the divers and WAF officers the much-needed boost to restore water on Galoa Island.
For the time being, people are depending on rainwater and carting services from WAF.
