ELEVEN boreholes will be dug up to further supplement water supply at Nawaicoba settlement in Nadi.

This project follows work done by the Water Authority of Fiji to supply water to about 165 households in the settlement.

Nawaicoba advisory counsellor Kuar Singh said the settlement started digging the first of the 11 boreholes yesterday.

"This is just to add on to the work that is already being carried out by the WAF," he said.

"More than 20 homes have been fitted with water meters.

"We expect to have more installed in the coming weeks," he said.

Mr Singh added work on upgrade of water meters began in June.

"There's another 50 more to be fitted with new meters."

The advisory counsellor said out of the 11 boreholes, eight would be in Nawaicoba while three would be installed at Yako settlement.
