New water plants

Salaseini Moceiwai
Saturday, January 04, 2014

WATER discolouration will soon be an issue of the past for some Savusavu residents now that the Water Authority of Fiji has bought two water treatment plants.

In a presentation at the heads of departments meeting in Labasa early this week, WAF regional manager Northern Romulusi Mataitoga said one plant was proposed for Ba and the other one for the hidden paradise town.

"We have received emails about discolouration of water from some people in Labasa and Savusavu," Mr Mataitoga said.

"Some consultants from New Zealand were around late last month to clean the plant in Benau in Labasa and they will be back again in March," Mr Mataitoga said.

"They have cleansed the plant that has operated for about 15 years now.

"We are hoping that the water supply in Labasa will be completely treated and cleansed when the consultants return again in March."

For Savusavu, Mr Mataitoga said they hoped such problems would also be solved.

"The proposed plant for Savusavu is expected to clean the water in the area and hopefully, the residents won't have to receive brown water again from their taps."

Mr Mataitoga also said they were working on two rural water projects in the North for the purpose of providing proper piped water supply.
