$283k relocation project

THE Water Authority of Fiji will soon relocate and replace the existing Seaqaqa pump main line from the raw water well to a reservoir in the area.

This is among other confirmed major projects the authority will work on in the first quarter this year.

In presenting the authority's proposed projects to the Macuata Provincial Development Board meeting in Labasa yesterday, the authority's Northern manager Romulusi Mataitoga said the main would be about 150mm.

"The proposed allocation for this project is $283,000.

"The project is expected to boost the inflow capacity and will also operate efficiently and effectively for maximum benefit to all Seaqaqa consumers.

"Also, we will be extending a 100mm main from Taganikula to Wainikoro up in northern Macuata. At present, the areas are not served by WAF's water system and they are accessing water from wells and boreholes."

Mr Mataitoga said the proposed project would cost about $210,000.

"In Dreketi, we will be upgrading the outlet main at the Dreketi reservoir from 100mm to 150mm.

"The existing 100mm PVC outlet is old and frequently bursts causing disruptions to the areas. Once the outlet is maintained, we will be able to improve the service deliveries on our systems.

"This is expected to cost about $118,000."
