Customers complain of intermittent water supply

A RESIDENT of Tauvegavega says water supply to their community has been irregular for the past three years.

Willie Wise said the hassle of collecting water on a daily basis for the past three years had become a burden for residents of Tauvegavega outside Ba.

"We have been placing complaints with the Water Authority of Fiji for the past three years in both the Ba and Suva offices but nothing has been done," he said.

"Some supervisors were also supposed to come and see what the problem was but no one has come."

Mr Wise said the ordeal was stressful and making life difficult for the residents.

"We might only get water for one or two hours in the day then we have to stay up and wait for the water to come on as late as 10pm or 1am.

"This gets very tiring and now, we just want someone to look into this matter and help us."

He said his community was pleading with the authority to fix the problem.

Similar complaints were made by residents of Lovu and Vatamai in Lautoka, who said they had been receiving inconsistent supply for the past few months.

Questions sent to WAF via email on Tuesday have remained unanswered.
