Health hazard

RESIDENTS of the Navutu Industrial area in Lautoka are concerned about a sewer line leak.

Resident Chandra Lok said this was not the first time sewage had seeped from the line.

"We have faced this problem many times but now it's just getting out of hand," he said.

"Despite numerous complaints to the town council, we have not seen anything happening to fix the problem.

"We are asking the authorities to respond and fix this problem."

Mr Lok said the stench from the leak had become unbearable and many residents were certain it would turn into a health risk.

"We have been facing this for six years.

"It is becoming not only a breeding place for mosquitoes but other pests as well."

Lautoka City Council CEO Jone Nakauvadra said they were aware of the problem.
