A NEW gravity water source has been established in the mountains at Ura Estate to help people in the south of Taveuni with proper water supply.

WAF regional manager northern Romulusi Mataitoga announced this at the government's heads of departments meeting in Labasa early this week.

He said a team had been deployed to carry out the necessary scooping works for the project.

"The team is on the island and they have identified the gravity source up in the mountains of Ura Estate," Mr Mataitoga said.

"They are also working on installing the pipelines as part of the project."

This newspaper had earlier highlighted the plight of residents in the area who have been deprived of proper water supply over the past years.

Mr Mataitoga said the project was expected to solve water problems in the area.

At the same time, he said work on the Savusavu sewerage supply system was expected to begin this year.

"We had a meeting with the divisional planning officer northern and the roko tui Cakaudrove and we have also received the approval of the landowners who have given their land for the project," Mr Mataitoga added.
