Settlement Benefits From $365k Water Project Laying of new water mains in Savutalele Settlement

The 110 residents of Savutalele Settlement, off Prin­cess Road in Tacirua, now have access to a better water supply after the completion of hydraulic mains improvement works in their area.

Over the years, the residents have relied on water sup­plied via an 80mm PVC line, but with the increase in popu­lation, the demand has also increased.

This has prompted the Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) to upgrade the existing 80mm main to a 100mm mPVC main line. The $365,708 water project which was outsourced to Taviraki Building and Civil Works Limited saw the instal­lation of the new, approximately 890 metre pipeline, along with the installation of two air valves and a pressure regu­lating valve, as well as two washout valves.

The project also saw the installation of four underground fire hydrants with standard concrete chambers.

The completed water project has improved conditions for the Savutalele residents, as over the years, they have been obtaining water from a system with an intermittent sup­ply during peak hours.

WAF chief operating officer, Samanmal Ekanayake, said WAF would continue to implement works that ensure Fiji­ans have access to safe drinking water and proper sanita­tion. Mr Ekanayake said the settlement now enjoys a con­sistent supply of water that should withstand dry seasons, and an improved, water system performance.
