Water supply disrupted

Salaseini Moceiwai
Friday, January 31, 2014

THE water mains at Benau and Nasarava in Labasa have broken, causing the disruption of water supply to some areas yesterday.

As a result, customers in Rara Housing, Lajonia, Wailevu, Waidamudamu, Vunimoli and Nagata were advised to store water.

"Repair works are in progress and the supply is expected to normalise in the evening," a WAF statement said.

"WAF advises its customers residing in the affected areas that supply has been disrupted due to two burst mains at Benau and Nasarava.

"Those customers who have further queries can call us on 3346777 or send their messages to 5777 through Vodafone or Inkk mobile."

Meanwhile, WAF officials in Labasa carted water to residents in Vaturekuka, Vatunibale and parts of Basoga and Bulileka as a result of a burst main in Siberia on Monday.

Water was restored to these areas on Tuesday night.
