‘Use Water Sparingly’

The director for National Disaster Management, Manasa Tagicakibau, is calling on the general public to use water sparingly in light of the dry spell affecting the Fiji Group.

Mr Tagicakibau said 15,603,920 litres of water had so far been distributed among communities affected by the dry spell.

He said Government had spent $918,000 to cart and provide water to affected areas.

“About 2,999,920 litres of water has been distributed to affected areas. About 11,200,000 litres of water has been delivered to Southern Lau and the Lomaiviti Group,” Mr Tagicakibau said.

Meanwhile, in the Central Division, the Water Authority of Fiji is co-ordinating, monitoring and conducting assessments of effects of the dry spell and the delivery of water to affected areas.

He said 314,000 litres were distributed to parts of Galoa in Serua, Tailevu North and Naitasiri.

He urged the public to take necessary measures to minimise the use of electricity to lighten the load on the main Fiji Electricity Authority grid which also depend on water in Monasavu to generate electricity.
