Public Advisory – Tacirua

The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) wishes to advise its customers living along Dokona-I-Suva and Colo-I-Suva area will experience low water pressure to no water supply from 11pm Friday (24/08) to 6am Monday (27/08).

Affected Areas include:

  • Dokona-I-Suva
  • Parts of Tacirua
  • Naisogo
  • Toninaiwau
  • Vunikawai Settlement
  • Uluibeka
  • Forestry Training School
  • Forestry Stations
  • Colo-I-Suva Village

The disruption in supply is a result of essential works being carried out to replace a faulty clear water pump at the Wainibuku reservoir.

The pump will be back in operation soon after the repair.

However, water supply will be affected due to low water levels in the clear water reservoirs as a result of reduction in water production during this repair work.

Therefore, water supply is expected to be gradually restored from 6am Monday (27/08).

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

Water carts will be on standby to service the areas as and when the need arises.

The Authority highly regrets any inconvenience caused to its customers.

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