4-day water cut for West

Margaret Wise

PEOPLE in the Western Division who will be affected by a four-day water shut down next month should prepare themselves.

The Water Authority of Fiji said people living in Nadi and parts of Lautoka will be without water from 1am on February 3 to 5pm on February 6.

WAF said 100 water lorries will be used to cart water during the shut down.

A total of 55 trucks will service the Denarau area and 45 will service the Nadi, Momi and other areas.

WAF added that 15 filling points will be used to refill the trucks to ensure faster turnarounds.

The WAF Office in Namaka will be the command centre and phone contacts would be provided so people can check on truck locations and schedules.

WAF said the Lautoka CBD, including the Tanoa Waterfront, Cathay and Lautoka hotels would receive piped water from Saru.

Water will be released to the system on February 4 after repairs are completed to the Nagado Water Treatment Plant.

But because of the complex restoration process, supply should be normalised by Tuesday February 6.
