The Water Authority of Fiji confirms water restoration is being progressively done to areas still affected along the Suva to Nausori corridor.

Repair works on pipes that resulted in disruptions have been completed.

The disruption was caused by a major fault on the Waila to Wainibuku bulk water mains.

Chief Operating Officer, Seru Soderberg says their restoration team noted that fire hydrants in certain areas were opened this morning and this delayed restoration for other Fijians.

He says they are currently undertaking soil stabilisation works and the completion of works is ultimately dependent on the weather, and safety concerns from both COVID-19 and the on-site hazards of a major landslide.

The Authority is urging customers to follow COVID-19 safety guidelines, wear a mask and observe social distancing at all times when receiving water from water carting teams.

They are also urging people to use water sparingly during this time so as not to strain the system, since it is still operating at a reduced capacity.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama and Minister for Infrastructure, Jone Usamate inspected the repairs that was being carried out yesterday at Wainibuku.
