WAF apologizes for water disruptions
December 7, 2014 11:53 pm
A major landslide that occurred over the weekend has washed away two major lines that supply water to the Tamavua water treatment plant in Suva.
This means that currently there is no water coming from the Waimanu water treatment plant to Tamavua.
Water Authority of Fiji chief executive Opetaia Ravai says they are looking at setting up temporary pipes to transport some water from Waimanu to Tamavua.
“Some parts of Suva and the major parts of Lami, Delainavesi and up to Veisari – supply will be disrupted to these areas. For the water supply to these areas what we have done is engaged water trucks to supply water for the next couple of weeks while we fix these major lines in Colo-i-Suva.”
Savura creek located at the bottom of Wailoku is the only source that is currently supplying water.
The Authority is reassuring the public that it is doing all it can to fix the problem and normalise the supply of water.
