Water Authority of Fiji may have no choice but to switch-off the standby Genset powering the raw water pump station at Waila to prevent damages.
This is a precautionary and safety measure, due to severe flooding along the Waimanu River, following Tropical Cyclone Ana, and the associated rain that will be brought in by the impending Tropical Depression.
It says switching the raw water pump station generator off will, of course, be a last resort, yet Fijians should be prepared if the situations worsen.
Water Authority says the Waila water pump station draws water from the Waimanu River and pumps it to the Waila water treatment plant and if there is a need, they will have to switch off the Genset.
It adds that as a result, the entire Wainibuku water supply system will be impacted, and people living along most parts of the Suva Nausori Corridor, along Princes Road, Tailevu and Rewa may experience interruptions to their water supply.
WAF advises all customers to conserve and always store sufficient amounts of water to last for at least 5 to 7 days in their homes at all times.
