Low level affects water supply

LOW water levels in reservoirs in the Central Division are caused by increased usage from the general public, says the Water Authority of Fiji.

In light of this development, WAF has advised customers to use water wisely during this hot period.

Water supply has been very low and in some areas taps have run dry because of the low pressure. Flagstaff, Toorak and Nasinu reservoirs have low water levels.

In a statement, WAF said customers residing in parts of Suva City would continue to experience low pressure to no water because of the low levels in the Flagstaff reservoir.

Areas affected include Gordon St, Carnarvon St, Butt St, Desvouex Rd, Selbourne St, Hercules St, Upper Domain Rd and nearby areas.

WAF said supply in the affected areas would be restored progressively as the reservoir levels pick up and water trucks would continue to cart water to the affected areas.

Domain resident Angelina Singh said she had spent $300 in two days getting fresh water to her family.

"We haven't seen water trucks this side.

"We can live without electricity but water is very essential. I have a six-month-old baby and this makes things very difficult for me," she said.

WAF is yet to clarify if the low water level problem is being experienced in the Central Division only.
