Reservoir levels low

LOW reservoir levels at the Nagado Treatment Plant and an explosion in development in Nadi has resulted in continued disruptions to water supply in parts of Lautoka.

The Water Authority of Fiji has revealed that supply priority has been given to Nadi because of the high number of resort properties situated in the jetset town.

"Upgrading works are still continuing from Nadi to Lautoka but the main reason that areas in Lautoka which includes parts of Simla, Natokowaqa and Field 40 are facing intermittent supply is because of the low reservoir level experienced at Nagado," WAF said in response to queries from this newspaper.

WAF said the Nagado plant supplied water to both Nadi and Lautoka.

"At the moment as Nadi Town continues to develop quickly with most hotels based around it, majority of the water being treated in Nagado is being supplied to Nadi to meet the daily demand," said WAF.
