Public Advisory – Planned Water Disruption Notice – Nadi

The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) wishes to advise our customers living in Vuniyasi and nearby areas, that they will experience low water pressure to no water from 9:00 am Friday (16/04/21) until further notice.

This is due to our teams having to carry out essential isolation works on our water mains, to make way for the upcoming bridge construction. Water supply will be progressively restored once works are done.

We kindly advise our customers residing in the areas listed below to prepare accordingly and store enough water for 2 to 3 days worth of use.

Affected areas include:
San Bruno
Koroivolu Avenue
Part of Nadi Bk Rd
Wekamu Subdivision
Qeleloa – Dratabu Junction
Qeleloa – Lavusa Bridge

Water Carting trucks are on standby to service the affected areas during the temporary disruption period.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and we seek your understanding and patience until such time supplies normalise.

For further enquiries, customers can call 3346777 and 5777 (Vodafone, Digicel & Inkk users) or email
