Water plant upgrade

Salaseini Moceiwai
Saturday, March 15, 2014

THE normal water supply in Labasa is expected to be further boosted now that Water Authority of Fiji officials are working round-the-clock to complete the upgrading of the Benau Treatment Plant.

The authority's Northern manager Romulusi Mataitoga told members of the Macuata Provincial Development Board meeting in Labasa this week, the old plant was constructed 15 years ago.

"The plant hasn't been working and the government had spent about $3million to construct it 15 years ago," he said.

"Overseas consultants are expected to come in at the end of the month to finish up the work.

"When this is completed, residents will be able to receive wholesome water supply in their homes."

Mr Mataitoga also said they were working on rural water projects in the North for the purpose of providing proper piped water supply.
