The commissioning of this new DN 600 transmission pipe will contribute towards significant improvement in pressure and flow on the Nadi Bulk System and also improvement in water supply to the customers residing in elevated areas of Nadi.

The planned operations and commissioning works is expected to be completed by Sunday mid-night and water supply to the affected customers is expected to be gradually restored by 8.00am on Tuesday (11/12).

The Authority is kindly advising its customers residing in the areas above to start storing water now and to use water wisely for their immediate needs during this temporary disruption period.
