Be prepared for possible water cuts in the Suva-Nausori corridor as the Water Authority of Fiji says due to the current dry spell, the Waimanu River is starting to have low levels of water which may impact water supply.
WAF says until water levels normalise, this will have a ripple effect on water supply as production is dependent on raw water intake, especially from the Waimanu River and the receding levels will affect pump operations.
It says raw water from Waimanu River supply the Waila Water Treatment Plant and when water levels drop below 0.8m, pumps are progressively switched off to maintain safe levels to continue operations.
You are being asked to store enough water for use while it is still available.
The Authority is also urging you to practice water conservation while they wait for the water levels in the Waimanu River to reach healthy operational levels.
You can call on 5777 or contact through the WAF App for water carting trucks in case of an emergency.
