VILLAGERS of Salevukoso on Druadrua breathed a sign of relief with the successful completion of a borehole survey on the island by the Water Authority of Fiji.

WAF spokeswoman Sheenal Sharma said a team visited the island on March 28.

"The team is working on a detailed survey based on the borehole data report provided by the Mineral Resources Department.

"Once the survey has been completed, the estimate cost of this project on Druadrua Island will be determined."

Miss Sharma said the villagers would be advised in due course once the costs had been finalised.

"However, they will have to pay 10 per cent of the total cost while the 90 per cent will be borne by the government."

This newspaper earlier highlighted the villagers' concerns for a regular source of water.
