The Water Authority of Fiji is considering taking action against the contractor that damaged the main pipeline along Princes Road in Tamavua yesterday morning.

Chief Operating Officer Seru Soderberg says the Authority is strongly considering options against the contractor who was working for a telecommunications company.

Soderberg says this includes the cost of repairs for plant and labour, water carting costs, and other expenses incurred as the result of the contractor’s alleged negligence.
