WATER woes will soon be over for villagers of Kilaka in Kubulau, Bua, now that the Water Authority of Fiji has assisted them with proper tap water piping systems.
In a talanoa session with the Prime Minister on Wednesday, the villagers revealed how they had not been assisted by the authority for the past four years despite their constant efforts to get assistance.
Speaking for the villagers, Manueli Pita said they paid their one third contribution of $4380 in 2010 as required by the authority but had yet to be supplied with the items.
Mr Pita said it was really difficult for the villagers because they had to walk a distance to get water from the nearest water source.
In response, the authority's North manager Romulusi Mataitoga said their workers took pipes to Kilaka on Wednesday and would assist the villagers with their installation.
Another concerned Nakorovou villager, Iosefo Nabete, said they had been sharing water with Ratu Emeri Catholic Primary School.
He said there was only one water source in the area and it could not cater for them because it dried up at times.
Mr Mataitoga said they would also look into the matter.
