Twenty-four households of Abaca Village, in Ba have had their rural water supply upgraded by the Water Authority of Fiji Rural Team West.
Chairman of the Abaca Village Water Committee, Pauliasi Kubu says since the upgrade, there has been a vast improvement in the supply of water to every family.
Kubu says the new system includes the construction of a new dam and a 45,460 litre tank reservoir.
He says the tank will store enough water for all of them and also for those who are going to build their house later.
Kubu adds that the previous system was constructed in the 1960s and had developed leaks.
The project which costs more than $80,000 took three months to complete.
Abaca is 25 kilometres inland from Lautoka.
