The failure of a backup generator in the Tovata Reservoir has caused water supply disruptions in some parts of Suva.

The Water Authority issued a statement that a planned power outage at the Tovata booster pump station necessitated the use of a back-up Genset, however it developed a technical issue.

WAF states this resulted in the Tovata Booster Pump Station going offline and mechanical and electrical teams are working to resolve the matter as soon as possible.
