Westerners urged to store water

Monday, March 24, 2014

Update: 7:00PM PARTS of Lautoka will be without water for six hours from mid-day tomorrow.

And the Water Authority of Fiji is advising those living in elevated communities in the greater Lautoka area to store water for use during this period.

The disruption is due to the planned work by WAF's Nagado refurbishment contractors to connect our new stage two flocculation system into the existing stage two sedimentation tank 600mm inlet line.

The following areas will be affected: Kashmir, Simla, Tavakubu Back Rd, Saru  Back Rd, Ba pro drum house, S M Koya, Bavadra, Sarju Delagate, Eddie Wong St, Kermode Rd, Ba Pro High School, Ram Asre St.

WAF said supply should normalise by midday Wednesday.
