The Water Authority of Fiji is advising customers living in Tamavua along Princess Road and surrounding areas that they may experience intermittent supply of water at times from today (18/03).
Affected areas include:
- Parts of
Princess Road – from Twomey Hospital to Loa Street
- Fiji National
University – College of Medicine, Nursing & Health Sciences (CMNHS)
- Tamavua Village
- Wailoku Road
- Naranji Street
- WAF Wailoku
- Deoji Street
- Upper Ragg
- Amputch Street
The temporary interruption in
water supply is due to a burst main infront of the Twomey Hospital in Tamavua,
along Princess Road.
WAF ground teams are working around the clock to restore supply as well as to address the balancing of water pressure and flow in pipelines and reservoirs which is causing fluctuations in water levels which has resulted in intermittent water supply to customers.
The Authority advises customers residing in the area above
water wisely and to store water for their immediate
needs during this temporary disruption period.
Water carting trucks are on standby to service the affected
areas during the temporary disruption period.
The Authority urges customers to conserve and always store
sufficient amounts of water to last them for at least two to three days in
their homes at all times.
The Authority also encourages Fijians to invest in storage
containers or water tanks connected to the water system for storage and backup
supply during any unplanned disruption that may arise due to emergency works,
as well as natural disasters.
