Please be advised that repair works on DN500 main were successfully completed and supply to the Lolobalavu reservoir has been restored. WAF crew members have gradually opened the supply towards the Southern end of Nadi as of 9.50pm last night (09/10) to normalize the supply to the affected customers and have seen supply to elevated areas gradually restored.


The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) wishes to advise its customers living in the southern end of Nadi from Nadi Town to Marriott that they will be experiencing low water pressure to intermittent water supply from now until 8AM Thursday (10/10).
