Water Authority Will Have A New CEO Soon

The process has started to recruit a new Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) chief executive officer with a strong engineering and technical background in water and wastewater management.

The new chief executive officer will oversee major projects scheduled to begin early next year, including the $840.375 million (US$405m) greater Suva area water and waste water scheme.

WAF chairperson PL Munasinghe said the new CEO would replace Opetaia Ravai, whose contract had been discontinued.

“While we thank Mr Ravai for his excellent work over the past five years it is time to position the authority to meet the engineering and technical challenges ahead,” said Mr Munasinghe.   

“WAF is entering a new era that is becoming highly technical and we need a person with extensive hands on experience in water and waste water project development to lead the authority.”

Mr Munasinghe expects the new CEO to be named soon.
