The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) wishes to advise its customers living in the greater Nadi area that they will be experiencing water disruptions such as low pressure and intermittent supply up until Monday, July 17 th .

This is due to low water levels at the Nagado Water Treatment Plant caused by damage to its filtration system.

“The damage has affected the water flow resulting in a major reduction in production capacity,” said WAF Chief Executive Officer, Mr Opetaia Ravai.

Areas affected include the general Votualevu area from Tadra Road, ATS, Savunawai right up to CAAF compound, the Holika areas, Nadele from Thompson Road up to the Sleeping Giants, Lolobalavu areas and along Nadi Back Road, Solovi areas, Nasau from SS Hotel right up to Mulomulo Village and Nagado areas such as Malolo, Navo, Tunalia, Nacovi, Sonaisali, Malamala, Nawaicoba, Yako, Nabila, Fiji Marriot Momi Bay Resort, and Uciwai.

“We are therefore kindly advising all our Nadi customers residing in these areas to please store and use water wisely for their immediate needs during this disruption period.

To ensure an adequate supply we are operating twenty water carting trucks to the affected areas,” said Mr. Ravai.

He said that by Monday, water production is expected to begin recovering once the repairs are completed.

“WAF plans to boost treatment capacity and water supply controlled by a fully automated Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system (SCADA) project to protect against future filtration disruptions,” Mr Ravai said.

Mr Ravai said that the WAF deeply apologizes for the inconvenience caused to Fijians living in the affected areas.

“WAF is totally committed to resolving the water supply issues that the people in the Western Division are currently facing,” said Mr Ravai.
