Damage to borehole leaves villagers without water

A VILLAGE in Nadroga has been without water for almost three months because their borehole facility has been damaged.

The issue was brought up at the Conuya tikina meeting where it was heard the facility at Naroro Village was damaged by drunken youths.

The meeting was told the villagers have had to source water from the Sigatoka River or fill drums when it rains.

On Monday, Nadroga provincial administrator Peni Koro sent a request to the Water Authority of Fiji to fill the village water tanks as a temporary measure, and as a permanent measure to extend the main line located 2km from the village.

"This was only brought to my attention during the tour for the meetings with the tikina, so we have requested the authority for temporary measures so the villagers can drink and then we have proposed a long term measure to connect them to the main line."
