WAF upgrades Galoa water supply system

November 10, 2018 9:58 pm

Water supply will no longer be an issue for Galoa islanders in Lekutu Bua following the upgrading of their existing water source by the Water Authority.

Galoa Water committee chairman Serupepeli Sekealevu says the residents were facing intermittent supply due to the recent prolonged dry spell.

Sekealevu says the villagers have welcomed the repairs done to their water source saying it is timely.

“Earlier this year when I took over the leadership of the Water Committee, the island had already been suffering with water problems. However, recently the WAF team arrived and put a temporary fix to our pipes and water supply has been fully restored on the island, I am very grateful to this assistance.”

Galoa villager, 74-year-old Salanieta Nawala, says consistent water supply is a dream come true.

“When we were without water supply, it was very hard for us, especially us women – working and doing our chores with limited supply of water. But now it is a good time for us, we can use both rain water and the normal water supply through the taps, following the repairs that were made by the WAF team.”

The successful completion of temporary works to the 5.59 kilometer, under-sea, pipeline connects Galoa Island with their existing water source.
More than 260 villagers are residing in Galoa.
