The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) would like to advise our valued customers residing in Labasa that due to the prolonged dry season currently affecting the raw water sources for our Labasa systems:

⚬ New water meter connections are on hold until further notice

⚬ Car wash businesses within the Labasa reticulation system have been temporarily suspended until further notice

Customers in the region are once again reminded to be mindful of the amount of water that they use and are encouraged to visit the following link:…/water-conservation/ for tips on how to conserve and use water wisely.

Customers are also reminded to always practice preparedness and store sufficient amounts of water to last them for at least 2 to 3 days in their homes at all times and are encouraged to invest in storage containers or water tanks connected to the water system for storage and backup water supply, during any unplanned disruption that may arise due to emergency works or natural disasters.

We look forward to the continued support and cooperation from our customers and thank them for their patience and understanding during this time.
