The Water Authority is ready to undertake repair works on a major leakage along the Vaturu-Nagado high pressure water pipeline at Batiri.
During the repair and restoration period, water supply will be disrupted to elevated residential areas of Lautoka from 10pm today till 6am Tuesday.
WAF Acting General Manager Operations, Sekove Uluinayau says all preparatory works have been undertaken and their contractors are geared up to carry out the repairs.
Uluinayau says the leakage is suspected to have started from the welding joints and has deteriorated over the past few weeks – causing WAF to lose approximately one mega liter per day.
He adds that a hundred water tanks will be placed in villages and communities and 19 water carting trucks will be deployed.
All residents in the Lautoka area are urged to store water.
