Expect water disruptions

Timoci Vula

THE Water Authority of Fiji has advised its customers residing in some elevated areas in Suva and Lami that they will be experiencing water disruptions. The following elevated areas are affected:

* Delainavesi down to the Naval Base;

* Wailoku Delainavesi;

* Qauia St;

* Powell Crescent;

* Naivikinikini;

* Red Hill;

* Panoromic Hill;

* Veisari;

* Wailoku;

* Samabula;

* Rewa St;

* Ratu Sukuna Rd;

* Waimanu Rd;

* Toorak; and

* Part of Muanikau Rd and Princes Rd.

The Waimanu Power Station supply was switched off at 3.30pm by FEA for safety reasons. This constitutes a shortfall in the inflow to the Tamavua treatment plant, which will result in the disruption to water supply, WAF stated in a Ministry of Information statement.

However, it said water supply was expected to be restored in most of these areas once the power is reinstated. Water carting will also resume after the flood recedes. Residents in these areas are advised to store and use water wisely.
