Thousands of people living in Kinoya and areas along Suva-Nausori corridor still experiencing water disruptions

Thousands of people living in Kinoya and some other areas along the Nausori Suva Corridor are still experiencing disruptions in their water supply. 

Fijivillage has received several reports this morning from the public as they continue to experience water disruptions.

The disruption started on Sunday and was supposed to normalise by 6pm yesterday.

Water Authority of Fiji says this is because of air locks in the water supply pipelines as the pipelines were empty during the disruption.

It says their team is currently opening fire hydrants to allow the air bubbles to escape the pipeline so that water supply can normalise.

They are carting water to affected areas.

The Authority had earlier said the disruption was due to low water levels at the service reservoirs, which was a result of the planned power disruption by Energy Fiji Limited at the Waila Water Pumping Station. 

People can call the Water Authority on 5777 for water carting requests.
