The construction of a 40-megalitre Viria Water Treatment Plant which is earmarked to meet the increasing demand for water in the greater Suva and Nausori areas is progressing well.

The Water Authority of Fiji says the additional supply capacity from Viria Plant is expected to resolve the current intermittent supply areas in Suva.

This facility is being constructed with the assistance from Asian Development Bank, Green Climate Fund and European Investment Bank.

Representatives from the ADB and European Investment Bank, along with senior WAF staff undertook a tour of the ongoing construction works in Viria, Naitasiri to first hand see the implementation of the program.

They were briefed on the implementation of the scheme which encompasses the construction of a water treatment plant, a treated water storage reservoir facility at Waitolu as well as the laying of 26km of pipes.

The Ambassador of the European Union for the Pacific, Sujiro Seam congratulated the project team on the significant progress after initial disruptions caused by the COVID pandemic.
