Large water shutdown planned for areas in Nadi and Lautoka From 3 February, an expected 165,000 persons in Nadi and Lautoka will be without access to drinking and drinking waters as part of a large-scale decommissioning by the Fiji Fisheries Authority (WAF). Kamal Gounder, head of the German Armed Forces, said that Nadi International Airport, as well as numerous restaurants, bars, hotels, clinics and colleges, would not be affected by the closure.

"We give household consumers almost a whole months to save enough hot and cold running time. Mr Goundar advised the customer to stock up on the storage of bottled waters, but also acknowledged that WAF will use 100 lorries to reduce disruption in the affected areas. The vehicles, which transport 5000 and 10,000 liters of watertanks, are installed at "strategic" places as refilling points for those who run out of stock.

Authorities found a leakage in the facility, which they said could cause serious long-term issues if emergency repair work does not begin at the specified point in it. In July and December last year, the sewage works above the Nadi hill had disrupted. This will be the first great stagnation that will hit a large number of individuals at a glowing hot period in the West division.

West-Fiji school shut down due to high water alarm - Xinhua

Suvia, April 3 (Xinhua) -- Educational institutions in the west of Fiji will stay shut for at least the next two nights until further assessment is made due to floods from tropical cyclone Josie. During the floods in the West Division after tropical storm Josie on Easter weekends, four persons were killed.

Some areas in the west of Fiji, such as Rakiraki and the areas along the Nadi River, are still subject to a high water alarm. Nadi Weather Office on Tuesday issued a warning that a gravure well in the north of Fiji will carry further downpours from Wednesday onwards, which will later extend to other parts of Fiji.

Meteorological office emphasized that Fijians must stay on their guard as the evolving meteorological system near Fiji could adversely impact the state. In the meantime, a high water alarm has been set for the low-lying areas, small brooks and lower reaches of Vanua Levu and Taveuni on the north Fiji islets. More than 1,000 Fijians took refuge in emergency centres at the peak of the floods.

In north-western Viti Levu, Fiji's biggest isle, where more than 70 per cent of Fiji's people live, Ba Town was hard hit by the floods and much work needs to be done to normalise service in business and housing areas. Robin Ali, special administrator for Nadi Council, Fiji's third biggest town, said that some 800 sellers were seriously affected because they had been losing their stocks.

Inia Seruiratu, Minister for Emergencies, said on Tuesday that she had selected seven priorities to work through following the floods in the west. He said that one of the main features is that earlier clearance of buildings used as emergency centers will take place.
