Supply disruption amid progressive water restoration

Shayal Devi

SOME residents in parts of Lautoka and Nadi were still without water yesterday as repair works continued at the Vaturu and Nagado Treatment Plant.

In a statement, WAF said most customers had started to receive water from 5pm on Sunday but delays were caused because of the progressive restoration that took place yesterday.

"The disruption continues but WAF will continue carting water to areas that are affected," WAF stated.

"However, there are some areas in Nadi and Lautoka that have begun to receive water."

WAF stated it was yet to determine the exact time repair work would be completed.

Residents have been facing water shortage since last Friday night as WAF repaired three major leaks.

The areas not impacted by the repair works included Lautoka City — except high residences along Loma Lane — Lautoka Hospital, Waiyavi Stage 5, MY Khan, Mendhi Place, Vitogo Paipai, Naikabula, Tomuka, Matawalu, Johnson, Drasa Dam, Ajan Rd, Qalitu, Vitogo Village, Naviyago Village and Vunato.

Those still affected are to call 3346777 while Vodafone and Inkk users can call or text 5777 to report their water needs.

Meanwhile, schools in Lautoka and Nadi remained open yesterday.
