Expect water cuts

Torika Tokalau
Friday, January 17, 2014

RESIDENTS of Tamavua, Nasinu and Flagstaff should expect low pressure or no water until further notice.

The Water Authority of Fiji confirmed in a statement the water problems were because of the unexpected power shutdown on Tuesday night which resulted in low inflow, causing a low water level in the Tamavua reservoir.

"The water levels in the Nasinu/Flagstaff/Toorak reservoirs are not healthy as well," according to the WAF statement.

Areas in Tamavua to be affected are the Wairua, Rewa St and Tip Top districts; Kinoya in Nasinu will also be affected as well as Laucala Bay, Bau and Cakobau roads in Flagstaff.

"However, supply is expected to be restored once the reservoir levels picks up."

The authority has assured that water trucks will continue to cart water to the affected areas until supply is fully restored.

"Customers residing in these areas are advised to store and use water wisely."
