Bid to improve water supply

OLD piping systems and infrastructure in some parts of the North is one of the issues that the Water Authority of Fiji aims to improve for the purpose of providing quality water supply.

And the authority is in the process of replacing old existing pipes and installing pressure reducing valves.

Responding to concerns raised by some Namoli and Vunivau residents on the intermittent supply of water they are currently experiencing, WAF spokesman Navinesh Kumar yesterday said they were attending to the problem.

"We are aware of the situation and right now, we are carting water to the affected customers. However, key operation works are done at night," he said.

"Ageing infrastructure is an ongoing challenge we face in these areas. The cause of this particular problem is due to frequent bursts on the 250mm trunk main at Nasealevu," he said.
