Nadi Town Council scooped the Storm Water Management Award during the 2016 Recognition Awards Night at the Tanoa Waterfront Hotel in Lautoka on Friday.

This was based on the council’s initiative of managing floods and soil containment.

The Nadi Town Council was proactive in dealing with legal stipulations to clear and de-slit creeks outside the town boundary that has been causing flooding to one of its main subdivisions.

Nadi Special administrator Robin Ali said the council was pleased to be recognised for this award.

“We are very happy as the council works have been recognised,” he said.

“It is just the hard work of people working throughout the year and despite TC Winston we had to carry on; despite the flash flooding and all we managed to do our work.”

Mr Ali said that there was a very big challenge as they had just completed the changes in the town boundary.

“Although it is the Minister who has to approve it, we have to work towards our city and there is a lot as it is to become a city, so we have to improve at least in all the sections,” he said.

“There will be a timeline as we are able to work on that and our performance on that, with our individual performance.
