“We want to reiterate to the residents in Nadi and Lautoka to start storing water now,” Mr Uluinayau said.

“We have only got one day left, Friday, and we want people to store at least 200litres of water to sustain them during the shutdown period.”

He said the 200litres was for cooking and drinking, and additional water should be stored for sanitation and other purposes.

Mr Ulunaiyau said the shutdown would begin at 1am on Saturday, September 29, 2018.
