WITH proper water being supplied to the village, major developments can surely take place, says Naloto Village headman Tomasi Toroca.
Mr Toroca said for many years, Naloto villagers relied on boreholes and water tanks to supply drinking water to their various homes.
He said at times, the water sources in the village were not clean however, villagers did not have any other choice but to use it as they lacked proper water supply, especially for drinking.
"At the moment, we are using 10 water tanks that were supplied by government and we also use boreholes too," he said last Saturday.
"Works are in progress for the Waidalice water project that is being constructed by the Water Authority of Fiji. Naloto Village, along with other villages close to Waidalice Village right to Korovou Town, will benefit from this six-kilometre water project."
He said after the water project was completed, villagers would not only have clean drinking but they would also be able to develop the village.
"We need water to have good facilities. For example, a few homes do not have flush toilets because of water problem, so we need proper water supply in order to have proper facilities in the village."
