$200k water project to benefit Etatoko residents

Update: 6:32PM A $200,000 Water Authority of Fiji project that began in January this year will soon benefit residents of Etatoko settlement in Ba.

According to a statement issued today by Pacific Reach Limited, the work which is expected to finish in April this year involves the laying of 160 lengths of 150mm mPVC pipeline, from the existing 80mm mPVC main, along the Etatoko circular road in Ba.

Etatoko area is one of Ba's elevated areas, where the water supply could not keep pace with the increasing demands of a growing population.

And they are drawing water from a borehole that is not sufficient to meet their needs.

Once the project is completed, existing WAF customers and those who have been connected to the system by the main extension project will receive an improved water supply with adequate pressure.
