Water advice

Luke Rawalai
Saturday, March 01, 2014

MEMBERS of the public in the Northern Division have been advised to store water before the next spate of heavy rainfall.

Water Authority of Fiji CEO Opetaia Ravai has requested customers to start taking precautionary measures before the wet weather sets in.

Mr Ravai said the authority's water catchments and infrastructure could be put at risk with natural phenomena such as cyclones.

"This will also increase the probability of water disruptions," he said.

"Hence, the need for customers to start storing water now, rather than wait until the last hour.

"In the event of any disruption, WAF customers can contact the 24/7 operational call centre for enquiries."

Mr Ravai said the inconvenience caused was regretted.
