THE Water Authority of Fiji has been tasked with completing a total of 26 rural water projects.

This is part of the approval by Cabinet for the authority to carry out rural water projects since September last year.

In his briefing during the heads of departments meeting in Labasa last week, the authority's northern regional manager, Romulusi Mataitoga, said the projects included the two desalination plants on Kavewa and Kia islands.

The plants were commissioned last month.

"The villagers are taking advantage of the plants as they are drinking proper piped water in their own homes. Right now, we are working on two other projects in Tabia and Taveuni," Mr Mataitoga said.

He earlier said a team was deployed to the south of Taveuni last week to work on the project at Ura Estate.

He said a gravity water source was established in the mountains of the estate to help people in the area with proper drinking water.
