Low water level concern

THE Water Authority of Fiji has attributed disruptions to water supply in parts of the Central Division to low water levels at the Nasinu, Flagstaff and Toorak reservoirs.

Lower areas of the Central Business District in Suva, Kinoya Rd, parts of Caubati, Khalsa Rd, Sakoca, Raiwai and Raiwaqa, upper areas of Toorak, part of Waimanu Rd, High St and Brown St had low water supply or no water at all.

According to a WAF statement, supply should have normalised by 8pm yesterday.

WAF has however not explained why these reservoirs had low water levels.

Restaurants in Suva's Dolphin Plaza were without water in the morning.

The Wishbone Restaurant advised its customers that they would be serving meals in their takeaway containers because they would not be able to wash dishes.

The Seventh-day Adventist Church on Gladstone Rd in Suva had to shorten their whole-day service to midday.

Church member Tokasa Tinavaluvalu said it was sad because Saturday was their Sabbath.

"I think it's advisable that the prayers ended at half day. It's a hot day, and there are children who come to pray as well. It's fortunate that a water truck came to our aid," she said.

WAF is yet to clarify if other areas in Fiji faced the same problem.
