3 water disruption notices for Tacirua and nearby areas since Saturday

Residents in Tacirua say they have been facing low pressure to no water supply for the last four months.

The extent of the problem can be seen as plastic drums are lined up along Princes Road in Tacirua.

Residents say they place the drums on the side of the road in the afternoon in anticipation of the arrival of water carting trucks.

In a week, residents say there can be two trips to their area by water carting trucks.

Between last Saturday and yesterday, there were three water disruption notices for areas along Princes Road and Dokanaisuva.

Setareki Daliduadua has lived in Tacirua for more than 40 years.

He says there are about 5,000 people that live in the area if you also include those that live in Dokanaisuva and Savutalele.

Other residents in Tacirua we have spoken to are facing the same problem while some residents have water supply.

In the three water disruption notices for areas supplied by the Dokanaisuva reservoir since Saturday, the Water Authority of Fiji stated that the reservoir level was below healthy operational levels.

The Water Authority of Fiji has already stated that their reservoirs experience low production levels due to high turbidity levels or dirt in the water caused by heavy rain.

It stresses that when there is high turbidity they have to reduce the inflow of raw water as a health and safety measure.

This is to ensure that there is proper settling time before treatment, so they can maintain water quality at a level that is suitable for consumption by customers.

You can call 1507 or 5777 to ask for a water carting truck to come to your area.
