LABASA residents were without water yesterday as work on a burst main pipe disrupted supply to certain areas.

Water trucks were dispatched to affected areas as work progressed during the day.

WAF spokesman Navinesh Kumar said repair works were being carried out in Nasarava because of a burst main pipe which was causing the water disruptions.

He said WAF customers in some areas in Labasa would be affected.

"The following areas are affected — Bulileka, Boca, Urata, Lowcost, Vitandra, Anuve, Dreketilailai, Boubale, Basoga, Vunivau, Soasoa, Batinikama, Wailevu, Rara Housing, Lajonia, Tabucola, Tabucola Tiri Rd, Qelewaqa," he said in a statement.

"Supply is expected to normalise by 9pm (yesterday), however, water trucks will be servicing the affected areas until supply is restored. Customers are advised to store water and use it wisely during the disruption period."
