A 3 million litre water treatment plant will soon be installed in Navua to meet the increasing demand for water supply for the Navua and Pacific Harbour residents.

This has been highlighted by Water Authority of Fiji Chief Operating Officer Seru Soderberg on the fijivillage Straight talk with Vijay Narayan after a resident from Hibiscus Drive in Pacific Harbour, David Jones raised concerns that they face constant low water pressure or no water supply.

Soderberg says there is a shortage in production due to high demand from customers.

He says there is also an issue of turbidity at the Nayani and Navua intake due to clogging especially during rainy weather which leads to a shortfall in production.

The Chief Operating Officer also says the main dam in Navua currently provides 1 million litres of water a day and installing the water treatment plant will increase the supply by 2 million litres a day.

WAF Chief Executive Officer Dr Amit Chanan says this is expected to be completed in 18 months which will also supply some security for the next 10 years to meet the future demands as well.
