Water problems

THE people of Vuna on the Southern tip of Taveuni continue to face water problems even though they are being distributed with water regularly by the Water Authority of Fiji.

Speaking at the Cakaudrove Provincial Council meeting on Taveuni yesterday the Vuna district representative Laisiasa Tuimouta told members of the council that the water distribution schedule for settlements on the South end of the island was irregular.

Mr Tuimouta said as a result the people of Vuna continued to face problems with having access to fresh water supply.

"Most of our people wait along the roadside only to be disappointed because there is no water distribution for the day," he said.

Responding to the concerns raised WAF representative to the meeting Pili Ieli said since they were now made aware of the problem being faced by the people of Vuna they would reschedule their water carting schedule and make people aware of the new schedule.
