Good news for thousands of people living in parts of elevated residential areas of Nadi Town and Lautoka City as water restoration is currently in progress.
The urgent repair works carried out by the Water Authority of Fiji to the major water leakage along the Vaturu‑Nagado high‑pressure pipeline were conducted and completed as scheduled.
Water Authority of Fiji Board Director, Kamal Gounder says the works were completed by 4am yesterday.
Gounder says their crew members started off their work along Vaturu by de‑watering the high‑pressure pipeline from the Vaturu Dam to the Nagado Water Treatment Plant where they were also able to isolate the leakage point to conduct the repairs without causing any major disruption to the Nadi and Lautoka residents.
He says the leakage was due to a burst and worn out rubber from the joiner because of the aging infrastructure.
Gounder says they are working to conduct necessary upgrades to the existing water systems around the country.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
