Waiyavi Youth Participate in Water Champions Programme

The Waiyavi Youth also known as Scorpio Volleyball Team, participated in the Water Champions programme last week.

We thank Mr Osea, who represented his community’s youth during our Western Division 2022 Annual Customer Forum, for initiating the event.

They were given a tour of the facilities, beginning at the Vaturu Dam and ending at the Natabua Wastewater Treatment Plant to give them a better understanding of the processes involved.

Through initiatives like these, we hope to raise awareness of what our work entails.

We remain committed to providing reliable water and wastewater services to our customers.
