Many people are raising serious concerns about water disruptions continuing with supply only being promised for 6 hours a day.
Calls are being made to the Water Authority of Fiji to explain whether the reservoir levels are going up.
WAF had earlier advised people that due the ongoing dry weather conditions affecting water supply to people in Lami-Suva-Nausori areas, the Authority will be carrying out essential water rationing exercise from Sunday, 16th April, 2023.
WAF says to minimise the impacts on service delivery as much as possible, valve operations will be carried out to maintain reservoir levels and people will experience no water supply from 10am to 4am the next morning, daily.
The Authority says water supply will normalise from 4am to 10am, six hours daily, and this is to allow customers to store sufficient amounts of water to sustain them until supply is restored.
It says the water rationing exercise will continue until such time when the dry weather condition ends.
The areas affected Wrong Turn, Sakoca, Upper Khalsa, Tacirua Heights, and Nagatugatu residents next to the Reservoir, Tamavua Koro, Upper Ragg, Deovji Street, Tacirua Bus, Amputch Street, Princes Road, Seventh Day Church Dokanaisuva to Tacirua Fijian School, Vunuleba Settlement, Naisogo, Colo-i-Suva Crest Chicken, Princes Road, Marshall Road, Taqairua, Vunikawai, Uluibeka, Colanaivau, Valesasa, Naitaqiri Nillgrey.
The water restrictions are still in place.

We have sent question to WAF’s Chief Operating Officer, Seru Soderberg. He is yet to respond.
