$6.8m plant

CONSTRUCTION works on a new $6.8million sewerage treatment plant for Savusavu will begin soon, says Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu.

Mr Bolalevu said the plant would be constructed by the Water Authority of Fiji.

"Things are coming along on construction work for the sewerage plant and I have been told by WAF that work will begin soon," he said.

"The CEO (Opetaia Ravai) was here yesterday (Thursday) and it's a positive sign because he was here to inspect projects done by the authority."

He said the treatment plant was vital for the town of Savusavu because of the town's increasing popularity as a tourist destination.

Construction will cost approximately $6.8m.

In 2012, Mr Ravai had announced the authority's plan to build the plant within two years.

He said the area of sewerage treatment was a negligible one where past management was concerned and "for whatever reason there were".

Mr Ravai said sewerage treatment warranted environmental and corporate social responsibility, which WAF would uphold through world standard practice.
