MORE than 35,000 Fijians will benefit from the recent installation of a new flow metre by the Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) at the Saru Reservoir in Lautoka.

This, according to Regional Manager West Romulusi Mataitoga who said: “All our customers that are feeding from Saru Reservoir have always faced the challenge of low water pressure and intermittent supply when larger particles clog up on the turbine which results in low water pressure.”

“The new flow metre will not only benefit our customers but will also make our work easier by generating accurate reading on the water quantity, water consumption by our customers and the flow reading,” Mr Mataitoga said.

A 12-member crew worked round the clock from 7pm on Friday, January 24, to 5am on Saturday, January 25, to conduct the installations.

Work involved the replacement of the old mechanical bulk metre with the new flow meter that now gives WAF customers an improved pressure to their water supply.
