MORE than 300 people living in Vakabuli, Lautoka, have been asked to raise $16,000 to benefit from a $169,000 water project.

Lautoka Rural Authority chairman Faiaz Ali said a large portion of the money would be provided by government.

"Some of the households in Vakabuli don't have water supplied to them by Water Authority and are surviving on water from boreholes," he said.

"The families that don't have boreholes have requested for something like this and we are pleased that government will be providing most of the funding.

"The total cost of the project is $169,000 and about 50 households have agreed to raise about $16,000 of that total cost."

He said the spring from which water would be supplied belonged to a landowner.
