The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) would like to provide an update on the repair works currently being conducted on the burst that had developed on the Raw Water Rising Main fed by Pumps 3 and 4 at our Waimanu Pumps Station on Sunday (20/02/22) – https://www.facebook.com/WaterAuthorityofFiji/posts/4681878128601860
Following the excavation and inspection work conducted yesterday (21/02/22), it was found that the Y junction on the rising main ruptured along its seam, causing leakage along the rising main that is supplied by pumps 3 and 4.
Due to the extensive damage sustained, temporary fabrication works will be conducted, so as to allow for a quicker restoration of water supply into Tamavua and Headworks 3 for use by customers, while a more permanent solution is worked on.
These works are currently underway and as a result customers feeding from the Tamavua Water Treatment Plant will experience a disruption in their water supply from now, until further notice.
In preparation for this, customers in the areas listed below are kindly advised to store in their homes, while it is still available, sufficient amounts of water to last them for at least 2 to 3 days and are requested to use water wisely during this time.
