The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) is working around the clock to normalise water supply to customers in elevated areas in the Upper Tamavua to Coloisuva corridor and elevated areas from Delainavesi to Vesari in the Central Division.
WAF Chief Operating Officer, Seru Soderberg said that the recent continuous heavy rains resulted in the increased discharge of silt and soil into the Waimanu River causing heavy turbidity which presented pumping challenges for the Waimanu Raw Water Pumps and has impacted the treatment and production rate of the Tamavua Water Treatment Plant (WTP).
“The reduction in production levels at the Tamavua Water Treatment Plant is currently affecting water supply to customers ranging from low pressure, intermittent to no water supply,” said Mr Soderberg.
WAF operations teams are working to rectify this by prioritising the replenishment of service reservoirs to desired levels to allow water supply to normalised to the areas impacted.
Mr Soderberg said that water supply restoration to affected areas will commence as soon as reservoir levels are healthy, and weather permitting.
“We are working to normalise water supply to our valued customers as soon as possible,” Mr Soderberg explained.
Mr Soderberg also apologised for the inconvenience caused and thanked customers for their patience and understanding.
Meanwhile, water tankers are on standby, and a request can be made to the National Contact Center at 334 6777 or shortcode 5777 or via email at email@example.com
