AFTER covering the Central and Western divisions, Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) CEO Barry Omundson this week visited WAF’s various divisions in the North and also to meet employees there.
This after four weeks of his appointment as the new head of WAF.
WAF’s Regional Manager Northern Apete Radrodrolagi briefed Mr Omundson on the status of water supply and wastewater services to Fijians in Vanua Levu.
“We in the North feel valued as employees of WAF. The fact that our new CEO is taking his time out to meet all of us is very good and helps cement the fact that WAF is a family,” Mr Radrodrolagi said.
“We are very committed to providing and improving water services and accessibility to Fijians in the North,” he said.
Mr Omundson was accorded a traditional welcome ceremony by the WAF team at the Labasa depot in Vatunibale.
He visited the Labasa depot, Labasa customer service centre, Benau water treatment plant and reservoir, and the Namara wastewater treatment plant.
Mr Omundson met Acting Commissioner Northern Uraia Rainima and had discussed water supply issues as well as the plans of the authority for the Northern Division.
He also inspected the four major raw water intakes for the Labasa water supply system at Nasealevu, Navau, Nasalasala and Nasarava.
Mr Omundson also inspected works at the new 80,000 litre ferro-cement intake reservoir site at Nasalasala, a project funded by the Fijian Government.
