The Water Authority of Fiji advises its customers that there will be disruptions in water supply in some areas of the Central/Eastern division constituted by the adverse conditions and flooding yesterday (27/2).
Water levels at the Nayagi Water Treatment Plant have also been affected due to power failure.

Some areas currently experiencing disruption in supply are:
– Whole of Calia areas, FNU Farm, Navua Town and Hospital,Naitata, Naitonitoni, Tokotoko Backroad and Highway, Naimelimeli, Vakabalea, Nasasa, Veiwawa, Deuba Villages, Vunibau, Narala, Raiwaqa, Waiyanitu and nearby areas.

However, water supply is expected to be restored once the power reinstates in most areas.

The Authority highly regrets any inconvenience caused to its customers.
