Water cuts

By DAWN GIBSON
Monday, December 17, 2012

Update: 2:38PM CENTRAL parts of the country have begun to experience water problems, the Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) reported in an update this afternoon.

Valelevu area, Naveiwakau, Caubati, Newtown and surrounding elevated areas were left with water disruptions because of a power failure.

Due to a power shutdown at Wainibuku, our Tovata water pump has been affected which has resulted in some areas in the Central Region to experience intermittent water supply.

Customers are being urged by WAF to contact their National Call Centre on 3346777 for assistance.

In other updates, residents living along Naboro, Navua and Deuba will also be experiencing intermittent supply this evening.

This is due to a power shutdown in that area. Water supply will be restored once power is back on, WAFs latest water update read.

In the western parts of the country, all hotels have been advised to store their own water for their own safety until operations normalise.

All shops in Lautoka City have been closed down and they are also experiencing water and power failures.
