The Water Authority of Fiji has confirmed today that the desalination plant installed at Navaca in Taveuni has been working fine.

This comes after the Authority provided a video as evidence of the desalination plant today.

They have said that the rumours provided by Fiji Labour Party Leader Mahendra Chaudhry is all fake.

After his visit to the island, Chaudhry had claimed the $3 million desalination plant installed in 2014 has been out of service for the last 18 months and residents of south Taveuni face chronic water problems going back over a decade.

When earlier questioned by Legend FM News on the clarification from WAF that the plant is working properly, Chaudhry says he does not believe the Water Authority. He maintains his evidence is the complaints by residents.

WAF says water carting is conducted on a daily basis from Monday to Friday based on the request made to their national contact centre on the number 5777.

The Authority is also urging the residents if they are facing any water problems to call their national contact centre on the number 5777.
