Continuity of essential services is critical: Tuisawau

The Minister for Public Works, Transport and Meteorological Services, Ro Filipe Tuisawau, inspected the Savura raw water pump station yesterday.

The Savura pump station is a critical water source for the Tamavua Water Treatment Plant, supplying approximately 21 million litres of water, daily.

Minister Tuisawau said continuity of essential services such as water is critical for cyclone preparedness while inspecting the backup generator at the site.

Water Authority of Fiji Chief Executive, Dr. Amit Chanan, discussed the facility’s climate vulnerability to flooding and the work done to address it, including raising three of five pumps above flood level.

Dr. Chanan emphasised that additional investment is required to elevate the remaining two pumps as well as modify the design of head works, which frequently become clogged after floods.
