Fiji’s Water Authority (WAF) has so far completed 20 out of its 29 ongoing capital projects for the year 2011 to 2012 at a cost of $2million.

In a statement, WAF said these project works include the upgrading of water mains, upgrading of treatment plants, purchasing of pumps, purchasing and installing of generators, payments and construction of water supply in rural areas.

More than $2.5million was budgeted for these ongoing projects alone and WAF has already committed close to $2million for the completion of the 20 projects.
