THE Water Authority of Fiji is still providing leeway for customers to regularise their sewerage and water connections before it begins prosecuting those with illegal connections.
WAF had provided an amnesty period for customers beginning on May 14 and ending on August 14 to encourage customers who were illegally connected to the WAF water and sewerage system to regularise their connections.
WAF chief executive officer Opetaia Ravai said there had been customers who had come up to regularise their connections during the amnesty period.
However he said there were still people illegally connected to the sewer and water lines of the WAF.
"During the amnesty period over 1000 customers have come up and regularised their connections," Mr Ravai said.
"But after that we still discover that there are still come customers who did not take this too seriously and unfortunately because of the end of the amnesty period we may have to start to prosecute some of these people," he said.
He said the WAF was still giving an opportunity to escape prosecution and the fines imposed by the WAF.
The fines for those illegally connected range from $1000 up to $1,000,000 together with other penalties.
