The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) will be carrying out emergency repairs to another major leakage at its Nagado Water Treatment Plant (WTP) in Nadi.

During the repair works customers living in Nadi and Lautoka will experience no water supply from 5pm today until 12pm on June 27.

Areas affected will be Nadi and Lautoka areas except the Lautoka City Centre and some outer boundaries of Lautoka who are supplied through the Buabua and Saru Water Treatment Plant.

WAF chief operating officer, Samanmal Ekanayake said the water disruption is a result of major maintenance work that will be carried out at the Nagado Water Treatment Plant.

“This maintenance work involves the urgent replacement of a ‘Polyjet’ section of the pipeline from the Vaturu Dam to the Nagado Water Treatment Plant.

“This particular section of the pipeline is currently leaking, causing the loss of large amounts of raw water.”

The Authority highly regrets any inconvenience caused to its customers and is committed to getting water supply normalised as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, customers in Nadi and Lautoka can contact the Nagado Shutdown Helpline through the toll free short code 1507 for TFL, Vodafone, Digicel and Inkk network users, or email nagadohelpline@waf.com.fj for further enquiries, which will be available 24 hours a day, during the emergency shutdown period.
