THE Water Authority of Fiji is now a member of Data Bureau of Fiji, which means those who fail to pay their bills could see their credit record tarnished.
Acting chief executive Opetaia Ravai made the comment at the signing of yet another initiative by WAF to improve its revenue collection and customer service.
WAF is owed $38million in bill arrears.
Mr Ravai said the authority would also be launching its website and later in the year customers would be able to pay their bills online.
WAF accepts bill payments through mobile money, SMS banking as well as at MH outlets in town.
Mr Ravai reminded customers that they had no excuse to not pay their bills now as they would also be reminded that their bills were due.
While collecting revenue is one of WAF's aspects of operations, it is also investing heavily in its infrastructure.
Mr Ravai warned those illegally connected to come forth.
Those who also connect their storm drains to WAF's systems have also been warned as they were further burdening the existing infrastructure.
Since the beginning of the year, WAF has registered 700 illegal collections across the country. The amnesty period for illegal connections is August 14.
