The Water Authority of Fiji has confirmed that their pumping stations in the Western division are still down.

The Authority states its still working towards getting these fixed and running as quickly as possible.

The Water Authority of Fiji is urging residents from the Western Division to call them and request for water carting if they are experiencing water disruptions.

Fijivillage had received reports from some residents in Tavua, Ba, Nadi and Navua that there was no water carting.

The Authority says that they will only serve those residents that have requested for water carting.

Over 300 people living in Nukuloa, Ba are without water from last Saturday.

Speaking to Fijivillage, Nukuloa resident Roshni Devi says they have not received water since Saturday and it gets very difficult for them to go about doing their daily chores.

Affected areas in Ba include Yalalevu, Nailaga, Toge, Moto, Babriban and Motosui.

The Authority had earlier confirmed that most of their pipes and water pump stations were damaged due to flood waters which has resulted in no water supply in some areas in the Western Division.

They have confirmed that there is no timeframe on when water will be restored to these affected areas.

A team from the Water Authority has been deployed to assess the damage to their infrastructure.

The affected areas include parts of Navua, Sigatoka, Nadi, Lautoka, Ba, Tavua and Rakiraki.

Members of the public can call the number 3346777 or 5777 if they are in need of water carting.
