WAF would like to inform its customers that the trunk main repairs and valve replacement works are very critical at this stage to minimize risks of major water disruption arising from a decrease in raw water flow to the Nagado Water Treatment Plant as a result of the leaking section of trunk main giving up at any time and also ensure supply reliability following the repairs of existing leaking trunk mains and replacement of defective valve with a new valve.
The repairs and replacement works are scheduled to be carried out to avoid any further disruptions in the water supply to the customers in Nadi and Lautoka as a result of water lost from the leaking trunk main and defective valve; which has already started impacting the customers in elevated areas of Nadi.
Water supply to the areas listed above shall be progressively normalised by 8.00 pm Monday (20/06/22).
Customers residing in the areas listed above are advised to store water for use during this temporary disruption period.
WAF urges customers to conserve and store sufficient amounts of water to last them for at least two to three days in their homes at all times. Customers are also 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 sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and we seek your understanding and patience until such time water supply is normalised.
Water carting trucks will be on standby to service the affected areas during the temporary disruption period.
For further enquiries, customers can call 3346777 and 5777 (all mobile networks) or email
