The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) wishes to advise its customers in the following parts of Nadi that they will be experiencing low water pressure to intermittent supply at times during the night from 9pm to 4am daily from tonight (29/11) to Tuesday (03/12).

Affected Areas Include:

  • Solovi
  • Meiganiyah
  • Taci
  • Togo Lavusa
  • Togo Masi

The interruption in supply is a result of planned operations on the five (5) supply off-takes to above-mentioned areas connected from DN500 and DN300 bulk supply trunk mains to Nadi, to recover water pressures on the trunk mains and water levels at the Nagado Water Treatment Plant clear water reservoir, during the off-peak hours for a period of three (3) days.

This will allow WAF to re-fill the Nagado reservoir to its maximum levels which had depleted in the last 2 to 3 days as a result of burst mains on supply off-takes feeding from the trunk and outlet mains from the Kashmir, Nasau and Holika Reservoirs.

Water supply to affected customers is expected to be normalized by 5am Tuesday (03/12).

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 carting trucks will be on standby to service the areas disrupted 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
