The Water Authority of Fiji is advising Fijians living in Sigatoka that the intermittent to no water supply of water currently faced is due a sudden influx of algae in raw water being processed at the Matovo Water Treatment Plant, resulting in low production of treated water feeding the Lawai Reservoir.
Affected areas include:
• Laselase Village
• Parts of Sigatoka Town
WAF engineers and technical teams are working around the clock to restore supply.
Water carting trucks are on standby to service the affected areas during this disruption period.
The Authority is kindly advising its customers residing in the areas above to use water wisely and to store water for their immediate needs during this temporary disruption period.
