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.

Out of the completed projects 16 were rural water supply projects. These projects were aimed at improving water supply to villages within Fiji’s 14 provinces.

These villages have benefitted from this initiative: Vatulili Village, Navukece in Naitasiri, Draiba village- Namataku/Navosa, Nasovatava - Waicoba/Nadroga, Nasukamai Village – Nalawa/Ra and Naiviqiri Village- Navakasiga/ Bua.
