The Water Authority of Fiji will be conducting a refresher training programme for the water committees in the villages of the Lomaiviti Province.

This was agreed upon by the WAF CEO Dr Amit Chanan and Lomaiviti Provincial Administrator Asesela Biutiviti, during WAF’s visit to Ovalau.

Dr Chanan says this will ensure these schemes can be properly maintained and continue to supply these communities as intended.

He says since its inception, WAF’s Rural Water Programme has brought clean drinking water to Fijians in hundreds of villages.

Dr Chanan adds they had a very productive meeting where they talked about rural water projects in the region and discussed how they could work together on service delivery to Levuka and surrounding islands.

He says they also got the opportunity to speak with their local stakeholders and hear their views on WAF’s service delivery.

Dr Chanan says due to the geography of the Lomaiviti province, there are a significant number of rural water schemes serving small communities spread across the islands.

He adds the Moturiki Island rural water scheme will be another rural scheme in the province and is currently in the final stages of construction.
