Public Advisory

The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) would like to advise our valued customers residing in the Savusavu District Metered Area, that due to the heavy rain and flooding currently being faced, the water is experiencing high levels of turbidity from now, until further notice.

While our teams are working around the clock to rectify this issue as soon as possible, residents in the area are kindly advised to boil all drinking water prior to consumption, for their health and safety.

We sincerely apologise for the inconvinience caused and appreciate your usual support and understanding until such time the supplies normalise.
