Update: 6:28PM GOVERNMENT has a launched an initiative which will now see the supply of 5000-litre water tanks to urban customers living in areas where current WAF system does not cater for peak demand.
The initiative will also benefit households connected to rural supply systems, but not enjoying a satisfactory water service and households and public buildings prone to water shortages.
In a public notice issued this afternoon, WAF stated Fijians who qualified would need to set up proper guttering and tank base in place before the tank was delievered.
Verification will be carried out by WAF and the Ministry of Rural and Maritime Development officials and households with an existing tank cannot apply for this assistance.
