Water woes end

Salaseini Moceiwai
Monday, January 06, 2014

WATER problems faced by residents in the south of Taveuni are now a thing of the past.

It is because of the commissioning of a water project at the weekend by the Water Authority of Fiji, through government assistance.

The residents of Ura Estate in Vuna have been without proper water supply for the past five months.

Newly-appointed district officer Taveuni, Jeremaia Ubitau said even though he had spent only about three weeks on the island, he was happy that such positive developments were taking shape just in the beginning of the year.

Mr Ubitau said he was prepared to serve the people on the island in terms of development.

The project sits on a piece of land belonging to the Winsome Investment Limited at Ura Estate.

Estate manager Mikaele Cabealawa thanked the government for attending to their plight.

He said the company was ready to establish a good relationship with the government for the purpose of developing not only the estate but also the whole of Taveuni.

About 200 people attended the auspicious event.

Last week, WAF established a gravity water source up in the mountains of the estate to help people in the area with proper drinking water.
