Patel says their focus is on the construction of the Rewa River Water Supply Scheme’ Project worth $266m.

This is the single largest infrastructure project ever managed by the Authority and will benefit more than 300,000 Fijians.

The project which is expected to be completed in two to three years’ time, has been funded by the Asian Development Bank, the European Investment Bank and the Green Climate Fund.

The Authority is also working on a new proposed Matani Water Source which will extend the water supply coverage in Labasa that includes the Vunika area.
