As majority of the people in the Lami-Suva-Nausori corridor continue to face water disruptions daily, the Water Authority of Fiji CEO Dr Amit Chanan says they have a daily production capacity of 170 million litres while the demand now is 173 million litres daily.

While speaking on fijivillage Straight Talk with Vijay Narayan Dr Chanan says the best case scenario is a daily gap of 3 million litres which they are only able to compensate by having intermittent supply in some areas, so that everyone can get water.

Dr Chanan says what we are dealing with is unusually dry weather.

The CEO further says when the water supply was built for Suva - Nausori , the weather pattern in the East was so distinct that there was reliable wet weather.

Dr Chanan says for the West , they knew there is a period between April to November when it is going to be dry and they built a dam.

He further says in the East, there is no dam.

Doctor Chanan also reveals that 60 million litres of produced water is lost through leaking pipes daily.
