JICA volunteer helps WAF address water leakage

IN a bid to address water loss caused by leakages, the Japanese Government dispatched a senior volunteer to assist the Water Authority of Fiji in the Western Division.

Facilitated through the Japan International Cooperation Agency, water expert Hajime Nozaki joined the WAF leakage control unit in August last year.

"Water leakage is a serious problem for water supply in these areas and I am working with WAF to improve the pipeline," he said while addressing government officials during the overseas development assistance tour of Japan-funded projects in the West.

"About 50 per cent of water loss is due to water leakage because there are issues with the pipeline and there are many problems resulting in irregular water supply to some areas in Lautoka."

West water treatment supervisor Govind Naicker said assistance by the Japanese Government provided people with water of the highest quality and at very low cost.
