WAF rations water supply

ALTHOUGH the water supply has been restored to major areas between Suva and Nausori, there are still many areas around the country that have yet to receive water.

Areas in Tacirua are still without water supply, however, the Water Authority said their teams were still working to fix the issue.

Other affected areas include Navua and Deuba, which continue to experience water problems.

"Power has been restored to major areas. Due to power shutdown, all residents living along Navua to Deuba continue to experience intermittent supply," confirmed WAF communications officer Kelera Serelini.

She said supply needed to be rationed in order to stretch reservoir storages and cater for the number of people still without water.

In the Western Division, Lautoka City continues to experience water problems because of the lack of power caused by Tropical Cyclone Evan.

"The following areas in Lautoka are affected — Lovu, Matawalu, Qalito, Waiyavi St 5, John Rd, Drasa Dam Rd, Vatumai Vakabuli," Ms Serelini said.

She said people living in elevated areas in Sigatoka were also being affected by the power outage.

"This has affected the Korotogo borehole and Qereqere borehole," she said.

On a lighter note, however, WAF said that a report from the field indicated all operations in the Northern region had returned to normal.
