The Water Authority of Fiji will look at options to work with Police if people are not adhering to the prohibition notice in place.
While speaking on fijivillage Straight Talk with Vijay Narayan, WAF CEO, Dr. Amit Chanan says the legislation does allow them to take prohibition notice to the next level, in terms of fining and potential prosecution but their appeal is to make sure that everybody takes heed of the situation and respond to what they are asking.
He says their expectation and hope is that people will listen to the message and work together.
Dr. Chanan says he is reminding everybody to be part of the solution, avoid outdoor water use like washing cars and driveways while we are going through this dry spell.
WAF Chief Operating Officer, Seru Soderberg says he has received concerns from people who say their neighbours have been using water blasters.
Soderberg says he has been explaining to them about the prohibition notice and why it is important to conserve water because a significant number of people do not get water supply 24 hours a day.
