Plans for a new reservoir

THE Water Authority of Fiji is still working on some of the necessary plan detail documents for the proposed hydraulic of the reticulation and reservoir site at Rara Avenue in Labasa.

In a statement, WAF communications team leader Sharila Lazarus said the reservoir would serve the people in Rara and surrounding areas, including the Tabucola area.

Responding to intermittent water supply complaints from residents in the Tabucola area, Ms Lazarus said as per the proposed plan, WAF would not build a reservoir in Tabucola area but in Rara.

"WAF's project unit are still working on some of the necessary plan detail documents for the access of the proposed hydraulic for the reticulation and reservoir site," she said.

"The initial plans for the reservoir construction is for Rara and not in Tabucola.

"We cannot disclose the exact time for the construction work, as our project unit needs to finalise all the plans and the other contributing factors."

Ms Lazarus said they were awaiting government budget approval for funding all their major projects.

"We are aware of the situation in the Tabucola area and we reassure residents that we are working on some short term solutions now by carrying some operation and providing water carting services to the affected areas.

"We are also awaiting a private company in a month's period to drill a new borehole at Nabekavu as they are still engaged with some drilling commitments in the Western region."
