WATER Authority of Fiji has completed upgrades in two areas of the Western Division.

According to WAF, repair work on pipelines have commenced in parts of Nadi, Lautoka, Ba, Tavua and Rakiraki.

"In Nadi, pipeline upgrading work was carried out in Malawai, Carreras, Legalega and Uci Rd, while a new pipeline will be installed in Vunayasi," the authority said.

"Work has been completed in Malawai and Legalega last week.

"In Lautoka, WAF is carrying out improvement work on water systems in upper Kashmir while pipeline laying work is currently ongoing."

WAF also started work on duplication pipelines from the treatment plant to the Tavua reservoir.

"In Rakiraki, we are focusing on new pipeline laying works and upgrading in Naria and Dociu.

"We are about to commence with a new water line in Malake."

WAF assured customers there would be no interference with supply during the construction phase.

"Laying of pipelines does not interfere with active supply lines, so there is no issue of disruption.

"The only time when disruption is expected is during the cut-in stage (at the end of the project)."

Some areas in the Western Division continue to face intermittent water supply and WAF said they were doing their best to address this.

Areas receiving intermittent supply in Nadi are Uciwai, Nalovo, Yako, Vellaidan and part of Transmitter Top, Vaivai, Vuda Back Rd and upper Vatamai in Lautoka, Tauvegavega, Tabataba, Navau top, Vutuni, Moto top, Vatiyaka and Navatu top in Ba, Tagitagi and Yasiyasi in Tavua and Naria, Dociu and Nawairuku in Rakiraki.
