The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) is working around the clock to provide clean drinking water to areas outside Suva that have been facing water cuts.

WAF acting chief executive, Samanmal Ekanayake, said: “WAF is totally committed to resolving the water supply issues that the people in the Central Division are currently facing.”

He said a 20-member WAF team worked non-stop to repair the damaged clarifier at the Tamavua Water Treatment Plant.

Mr Ekanayake said the clarifier sustained damage over the weekend because of the high level of turbidity, or solids in the water, as a result of the stormy weather. The clarifier is used to remove solid particulates or suspended solids from water as part of the pre-treatment process.

“I have just received confirmation from the engineers that the repair works have been completed.

“We are now refilling the clarifier and members of the public whose water supply has been affected shall receive normal water supply by this evening,” Mr Ekanayake said.
