Thousands of people living in parts of Suva, Samabula, Tamavua and Lami have been without consistent water supply since yesterday afternoon due to low production levels at the Tamavua, Colo-i-Suva and Dokanaisuva reservoirs.

The Water Authority of Fiji says the reservoirs are still recovering from the impacts of reduced production due to high turbidity or dirt in the water caused by heavy rain.

People living in affected areas have been told by WAF to expect low pressure to no water until further notice.

They say production at Tamavua Water Treatment Plant will normalise once turbidity levels are within manageable levels.

WAF is asking residents and businesses within these areas to store enough water when available as the system recovers.

Affected areas include Namadi Heights, parts of Princes Road such as Ragg Avenue, Deoji Street, Mead Road, Niraji, Wairua, Upper Mead Road, Lovoni Road, Loa Street, Goodrum Place, Kaba Road, Saimoni Vatu Place, Bureta Street, Maharaj Place, Tuvana Place, Levuka Street, Tubou Street, Lakeba Street, Helson Street, Nayau Street, Kabara Street, Fulaga Street, Sovu Place, Namuka Street, Moala Street, Vatoa Street, Matuku Street, Totoya Street and Rewa Street, Ratu Sukuna, Nailuva, Delainavesi, elevated areas in Lami, Panaromic, Waiqanake and Togalevu, Waimanu Road, Narain Jetty, Augustus Street, Brown Street, Nina Street, Mark Street, Rodwell Road and Robertson Road.

Call 5777 if you need a water carting truck to come to your area.
