No water for parts of Suva

Friday, February 02, 2018

Update: 5:36PM RESIDENTS living in the following parts of Suva are advised that they will be experiencing low water pressure to no water at times from today February 2 to Saturday, February 3.

A statement issued today by the Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) attributed the disruption as a result of extremely high turbid water entering into the raw water intakes of Waila and Tamavua systems, due to the heavy rainfall in the upper catchment area.

"The high turbidity levels have reduced water production capacities causing low water levels in the reservoirs," WAF said.

The areas affected include Delainavesi, Uduya/ Panaronic, Veisari/ Waiqanake, Samabula/ Rewa Street, Waimanu Road/Toorak, Ratu Sukuna Road, Tacirua and Tamavua areas.

WAF says that water supply is expected to be gradually restored from today up to Saturday evening.

However, restoration will depend on weather conditions.

Water carts will be on standby to service the areas as and when the need arises.
