Water restored to affected areas in the West

Tuesday, February 06, 2018

Update: 6:11PM THE 165,000 customers affected during the planned water shutdown in Nadi and Lautoka are now at ease as water to their areas has been restored.

Water Authority of Fiji board director Kamal Gounder said this following the completion of the planned Nagado Water Shutdown over the weekend.

He thanked members of the public for taking heed of the notices and storing water to sustain them during the water disruption period.

"Ensuring the availability of the drinking water requirement of 165,000 customers, including the hotel sector and other businesses during the shutdown period was the major challenge that WAF faced during our planning phase," he said.

"But with proper planning, we were able to meet the challenge. Awareness amongst the public, major customers including hotels, businesses and Government institutions helped WAF to achieve the goal."
