THE Water Authority of Fiji is hopeful that increased capital allocation will help address water-related problems faced by residents in the Western Division.

According to a statement from WAF, a lot of problem areas had been identified in the division.

"There have been a lot of identified intermittent areas in the Western Division, particularly in Lautoka," it said.

"These areas are Saru Back Rd, Tavakubu Rd, Kermode Rd, Kashmir and Razak roads and some others which have had this problem for a number of years.

"Given the increase in capital project allocation for the authority in 2014, we are now able to address such ongoing issues as top priority this year."

The authority has apologised for the inconveniences caused to valued customers.

"We are trying our best to ensure a short-term solution is in place such as water carting services for the affected areas."
