THE Water Authority of Fiji has announced that all work on affected pipelines have been completed.

The authority issued a statement which noted that although the problems had been repaired, people should still expect intermittent water supply although trucks would be carting water to the affected areas.

"The inflow level at Tamavua reservoir, howeverm is slowing increasing and improvement is progressive. Water carts will continue to supply," the statement read.

Areas expected to still be facing water supply issues are elevated areas in Delainavesi, Lami /Qauia, Uduya Point, Samoan Settlement, Panaromic View, Ben Naiveli Hill down to Togalevu Naval Base.

Other areas also expected to face problems were Queen Elizabeth Drive, Domain, Ratu Sukuna Rd, Nasese, Flagstaff, Muanikau, Baker, Waimanu Rd, Robertson Rd, Namadi Heights and nearby areas.

"Customers residing in the affected areas are advised to use water wisely until supply is fully restored. The authority sincerely regrets any inconveniences caused."

Last week, about 95,000 people were struck with water issues following two major leakages in the Tamavua Water Treatment Plant and the Waimanu pumping station.
