The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) would like to advise our valued customers residing in the areas mentioned below that due to the continuous heavy rain, the Savura raw water intake is currently flooded with heavily turbid water. The high silt content in the water is causing the frequent tripping of Savura raw water pumps, resulting in a reduced inflow to the Tamavua Water Treatment Plant. While the team is on standby for the rain and flood event to subside to restore the pump, it is currently affecting water production levels.
Reservoir Levels are currently healthy, however, due to the reduced production, reservoir levels will continue to recede. Customers in these areas should expect to experience low pressure later today until further notice as the level reduces further, and are kindly requested to store water, while it is available, for use during this temporary disruption period.

Production at Tamavua Water Treatment Plant will normalize once turbidity levels are within manageable levels.
We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused and appreciate your usual support and understanding until such time that supplies normalise.
We once again remind our customers to use water wisely during this time, and to store water for use when it is available.
For further enquiries, customers can call 334 6777 or shortcode 5777 (all mobile networks), or email firstname.lastname@example.org
