Abarela Settlement Receives Water Supply

For the 132 residents of Abarela Settlement in Navosa, the construction of the community’s new dam means a regular water supply.

The $211,327 water project, which started in early November last year, was completed last week Friday, and commissioned by the Water Authority of Fiji’s (WAF) Chief Executive Officer, Opetaia Ravai.

Mr Ravai said a contract was signed between WAF and the Abarela Settlement Water Committee that sees the settlement supplying labour to assist in the water project construction, with the financial reward of $6475 for their efforts that was presented to the Water Committee after the commissioning.

Abarela Water Project Co-ordinator, Sitiveni Kuriwasa, 41, said he was grateful for the Water Authority of Fiji’s assistance.

The project is managed by the WAF Rural Unit, under the Government’s Rural Water Scheme.
