THERE’S improvement in water supply with 60 percent of the city’s population receiving water.
Solomon Water in a statement on Wednesday said that improvements to water supply are being made in Honiara, following the devastating floods.
“About 60% of people in Honiara now have water services, however in some cases supply will be rationed rather than continuous and people should use water wisely.”
The water service provider said the National Referral Hospital is now fed by the Borderline supply which is functioning at full capacity, which until now was fed from the Tuvaruhu supply which was functioning at partial capacity.
All the regions that have water supply are subject to water rationing.
Meanwhile three areas remains affected without any water supply.
- White River, St. John, Independence Valley, Laundry Valley, Wind Valley, Tandai Heights, Rove. Pipes were carried away by the flood and major damage has occurred. Teams are currently working to repair.
- Tasahe A & B, Tasahe Heights, Ngossi, Tavio, Tinge, Titinge. Pumping main is broken, teams are currently working on repair.
- Kena Hill, East & West Kolaridge, Matariu, Koloale, Fulisango, Tanuli, Green Terrace House, Kombivatu, Naha Heights. The system is down and teams are currently working on repairing of the main pump.
- All other areas should have some water flowing through their pipes. Solomon Water advised these areas to boil water and use it wisely.
