THE Water Authority of Fiji is calling on its customers to store water and prepare for the cyclone season.

In a statement, authority CEO Opetaia Ravai said with the cyclone warning in place, and in the event of the cyclone hitting Fiji, water catchments and infrastructure could be at risk, which would then increase the possibility of water disruptions.

He said it was important for their customers to store drinking water rather than wait until the last minute.

In another statement, WAF communications officer Navinesh Kumar confirmed two major leaks at the Waimamu Pumping Station and the headworks three had been repaired.

He said areas that were feeding from the Tamavua Water Treatment Plant were no longer suffering from intermittent water supply.

The Tamavua Water Treatment Plant feeds the Shipping reservoir along Reservoir Rd, the Flagstaff reservoir and the Toorak reservoir.
