The Water Authority of Fiji is working to keep its major water treatment plants up and running to avoid major water disruptions in Suva.
A team of officers and divers attended to a report of blockages to the major raw water intake to the Tamavua Water Treatment Plant
This blockage hindered the flow of water supply from the Savura Water Pumping Station and this was due to heavy debris which was brought in by the recent adverse weather conditions, over the long weekend.
WAF General Manager Customer Services and Acting General Manager Operations Sekove Uluinayau said a team of skilled divers was deployed to the intake to remove debris at the intake strainer, which is located at the Cascade Dam in Savura.
“We hope that people will understand that what we do here is to try and restore water supply to all the households that are affected during this disruption.”
Affected areas include the elevated parts of Princess Road (Tamavua to Colo-I-Suva), Namadi Heights, Wairua, Wailoku, Samabula, Rewa Street, Waimanu Road, Ratu Sukuna Road, Delainavesi, and Lami up to Togalevu.
Uluinayau adds that if the adverse weather conditions deteriorate, it is more likely that the same situation may reoccur.
