The Water Authority is working to improve water supply to elevated areas in Nadi.
Earlier this month, WAF successfully commissioned the DN600 transmission pipeline from Nadele to the Votualevu rice mill junction.
WAF General Manager Customer Services, Sekove Uluinayau says the pipeline is 7.39kilometres long and is fed from the Nagado Water treatment plant and was installed during the shutdown period in September.
Uluinayau says due to the major upcoming and current developments in Nadi, it was imperative for them to undertake this project in order to meet the water demands from both domestic and commercial customers.
He says the new cross connection line is being opened extremely to prevent any hydraulics imbalance that may disturb and burst any of WAF’s existing bulk supply line due to sudden boost in pressure and water supply.
To improve water distribution, WAF is also working on installing two Tasman Tanks at 6 Megalitres each and works have begun at the site in Nawaicoba.
Another Tasman Tank will also be built at the Nadi Hospital.
These tanks will be reservoirs to hold water to service areas in the vicinity and they are expected to be in operation towards the end of next year.
