Media Release - WAF update of Waimanu Raw Water Pumps repair - 23-05-20
 Created on: Saturday, 23/05/2020   Print this page 

Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) ground teams are currently conducting emergency repairs on 2 pumps at the Waimanu Raw Water Pump station to restore water to the greater Lami Area from Delainavesi Bridge to the Naval base at Togalevu.

Currently, only pump number 1 and 4 are running while Pump number 3 is being repaired after sustaining damage to its shaft and bearing.

"The fault was caused by silt and debris inside the pumping gallery and when they were sucked into the pump it caused the pump to seize and lock up," said WAF CEO, Mr Barry Omundson.

"WAF ground teams are already conducting repairs and are expected to conduct the emergency works through the night. The priority is to ensure that Fijians have water and the team have carried out valve operations to sustain trunk main pressures and all areas that are not receiving water are being provided with water carts."

The Authority highly apologizes for any inconvenience caused to its customers and is committed to getting water supply normalised as soon as possible.

Fijians living in impacted areas have been urged to call 5777 should they have any queries or need assistance.
