Heavy rain affects Savura raw water intake

Due to the heavy rain experienced this afternoon, the Savura raw water intake is flooded and blocked resulting in a reduced inflow into the Tamavua Water Treatment Plant from 75MLD (millions of litre per day) to 40MLD, which further impacts service reservoir levels.
