THE Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) has reassured its Wailevu, Labasa customers that water will be carted consistently to their respective homes to cater for the irregular water supply experienced in the area.

Responding to concerns raised by some canefarmers on how their labourers have returned to their homes because of intermittent water supply, authority team leader corporate communications Sharila Lazarus, in a statement, said water would be carted until repair works on the burst main were completed .

"The authority finds it imperative to inform its customers that it has been sending out timely public advisories alerting disruptions through the media to inform its customers on possible disruption they might experience within a given timeframe," she said.

"In relation to water supply in the Wailevu and Waiqele areas, WAF confirms that these are not intermittent supply areas.

"For the last three weeks, there has been irregular water supply at Waiqele due to the upgrading of a new borehole system adjacent to the existing borehole.

"This could have gone into the distribution pipes, thus affecting the customers.

"Concurrently, repair works was being carried out on a burst main at Nasealevu whereby parts of Wailevu areas were affected on July 19, 21 and 22."
