The water quality at the Nagado Treatment Plant is safe for drinking despite the high level of algae flowing from its source, the Vaturu Dam.

The Water Authority of Fiji says the National Water Quality Unit has conducted tests at the Nagado Treatment Plant in Nadi and determined that the water is safe for drinking.

The Water Authority says they are currently pumping oxygen into the Vaturu Dam, to slow down the growth of algae.

Residents of Nadi that are currently experiencing water disruptions will be facing the same problem for the next seven weeks.

The Water Authority adds residents, businesses and schools receive about six hours of water supply daily together with the 23 trucks carting water to the affected areas.

They say ten 10,000 litres water tanks are also placed in strategic locations.

A total of 8,767 households, schools and businesses are affected by the water disruption in Nadi.
