10,400 Fijians will benefit from the new state of the art Savusavu Package Water Treatment Plant.

While commissioning the Savusavu Water Treatment Plant, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says this raw water treatment plant has been constructed at a cost of $4.58 million and is fully funded by the Government.

He says the plant will serve the township of Savusavu and its communities, businesses, Government stations, the Savusavu Hospital, hotels, resorts in the Savusavu area as well as the Savusavu Jetty and Airport, and there is provision for more new connections in the future.

Bainimarama says this plant also has been equipped with automated chemical dosing, an upgrade from the tablet and drip feed system, that ensures efficient treatment of raw water that is supplied at Fijiโ€™s national drinking water standards.

The previous Savusavu Water Treatment Plant had a treatment capacity of one million litres per day while this new station has a capacity of five million litres daily.
