Thousands of people along the Suva to Nausori corridor affected by no water supply or low pressure from last night are uncertain as to when supply will normalise while Water Authority of Fiji says they are trying to restore the supply.

WAF says high turbidity in raw inflow being received into the Tamavua Water Treatment Plant is affecting production levels and currently causing low levels to the reservoirs.

Chief Operating Officer Seru Soderberg says their operations team is currently carrying out flushing to restore supply to the affected areas.

He says once the team completes their flushing works and valve operations at around 8.30am, they will then be able to provide updates on areas that have been restored and the timelines for those yet to be restored.

Affected areas include Nailuva, Delainavesi to Togalevu, Namadi Heights, Princes Road, Rewa Street, Ratu Sukuna Road, Delainavesi, Panaromic, Uduya Point, Waiqanake, Osonabukete, Beninaiveli, Wrong Turn in Samabula, Sakoca, Upper Khalsa, Tacirua Heights, Nagatugatu as well as residents next to the Nagatugatu Reservoir, Tamavua Koro, Upper Ragg, Deovji Street, Tacirua Bus Garage, Amputch Street, Seventh Day Church, Dokanaisuva to Tacirua Fijian School, Vunuleba Settlement, Naisogo, Colo-i-Suva Crest Chicken, Marshall Road, Taqairua, Vunikawai, Uluibeka, Colanaivau, Valesasa, Naitaqiri Nillgrey.

Please call 5777 if you need water carting trucks in your areas.
