By SALASEINI MOCEIWAI
Thursday, March 27, 2014

Update: 3:54PM OFFICIALS from the Water Authority of Fiji left for Salevukoso Village on Druadrua Island in Macuata this morning to carry out a survey on a dysfunctional borehole in the area.

This newspaper earlier highlighted the plight of the villagers who have been drinking dirty water for about 10 years now because the borehole does not have a pump to impel water to the pipelines.

In a statement, WAF said: Once the survey is completed, the estimate cost of the project on the island will be determined and the villagers will be advised to pay 10 per cent of the total cost while the government pay 90 per cent.
