Water meter replacements

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

WATER Authority of Fiji customers whose meters have ceased because of aging may have to pay estimated bills for a while as the authority replaces those meters.

A statement from WAF confirmed they had begun replacing ceased meters around the country. It said the replacement process was a three-year program.

"For all WAF ceased meters which are 10 to 15 years old, customers are billed based on the last six months average normal reading (estimate)," the statement said.

"The authority has an ongoing project for all ceased meters to be replaced around the region. It is temporary until such time the meter is replaced or fixed."

The statement also said the provisions dealing with ceased meters were put in after the authority anticipated such technical issues.
