An Australian Defence Force (ADF) water purification plant established in Vanua Levu over the weekend has already produced over 13,000 litres of safe, potable water per day for distribution to those affected by last month’s tropical cyclone Yasa.

The temporary specialised emergency purification plant, which can desalinate seawater and turn it into drinking water, and its generator were setup in Vanua Levu as part of the Australian Government’s support to the Fijian Government’s TC Yasa response effort.

Members of the Australian Army are working together with the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) and the Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) to distribute the clean water from the water distribution point at Bakana Jetty, while also maintaining strict COVID-safe protocols set up by Fiji’s Ministry of Health and Medical Services.

The water entering the purification plant is demineralised, made safe and distributed by the RFMF and WAF to affected communities in Vanua Levu in a COVID-safe manner, prioritising the highest hygiene standards.
