Residents along the Lami, Suva, and Nausori corridor will be facing water disruption from today to Sunday 16th July due to planned waterworks carried out by the Water Authority of Fiji.

WAF encourages its customers to prepare accordingly and store enough water for use, during this period.

They say the planned works will allow their team for the installation of a new Generator and an Automatic Transfer Switch at the Savura Water Pump Station.

WAF also says that during the planned works, families will experience low water pressure to no water as well.

There will also be water carts provided and those in need can call on 3346777 or shortcode 5777.

Some areas that will be affected include Tamavua Reservoir, Nailuva, Qauia Street, Togalevu, Namadi Heights, Upper Ragg, Rewa Street, Navikinikini Settlement, Upper Tuisowaqa, Mika Dreu, Pathik Crescent, Ratu Sukuna, Delainavesi, Lami, Panaromic, Uduya Point, Waiqanake, Osonabukete, Beniveli, Upper Bureta and Upper Samabula Area, Wrong Turn, Sakoca, Upper Khalsa, Tacirua Heights, Nagatugatu Residents, amavua Koro, Upper Ragg, Deovji Street, Tacirua Bus, Amputch Street, Princes Road, Naisogo, Colo-I-Suva Crest Chicken, Princes Road, Marshall Road, Taqairua, Vunikawai, Uluibeka, Colanaivau, Valesasa, Naitaqiri Nillgrey and Seventh Day Church Dokanaisuva to Tacirua Fijian School, Vunuleba Settlement.

When questioned by fijivillage News on why these works are being done in the weekends as this will cause inconvenience to thousands of families, WAF says based on water usage demand reports and studies they have carefully selected the weekend to be ideal as the impacts would be minimal in terms of school and businesses.

They says the planned works will take three days to complete, a total of 15 hours spread over the three days.

WAF also says that working during the day is highly recommended due to safety and OHS reasons as their reservoir levels can only be replenished during the evenings, ensuring that there is supply for the next day because, carrying out the planned works in the evening would put customers with no water the next morning, which is a peak period.
