Update: 2:25PM THIRTY-two rural water projects have been outsourced by the Water Authority of Fiji to ensure the longevity and sustainability of village water supply systems.

This was formalised last Friday after WAF signed the contracts with three local contractors, namely Ariyan's Contractors, Basic Engineering Technologies and Taviraki Building and Civil Works.

In a statement, WAF chief operating officer Samanmal Ekanayake said the outsourcing model that the authority was implementing empowered the community by paying the water committee to organise the labour required to undertake the works.

Mr Ekanayake said this empowered the water committee to be responsible for ongoing maintenance and repairs, thus ensuring the longevity and sustainability of their village water supply system. 

He said it also built the local capacity of contractors to undertake water supply construction work.
