The 170 villagers of Vuci Village in Tokatoka, Tailevu, now have access to better to a water supply after the completion of the hydraulic mains improvement works in the area.

The $244,113 water project saw the installation of an approximately 412metre-long, DN 100 mPVC pipe to better serve the village. The water mains upgrade began from the Tailevu District, along the Noco Delta Road. The project also saw the installation of three underground fire hydrants with standard concrete chambers.

The water project was outsourced to Taviraki Building and Civil Works Limited. The completed water project has improved conditions for the villagers, as over the years, they have been obtaining water from a system with an intermittent supply during peak hours. WAF Chief Operating Officer, Mr Samanmal Ekanayake, said WAF would continue to implement works that ensure Fijians have access to safe drinking water and proper sanitation. Mr Ekanayake said the villagers now enjoy a consistent supply of water that should withstand dry seasons, and an improved, water system performance.
