Ward Patients at Vaiola hospital are rationing drinking water but suffer from other sanitary water purposes.

 

A spokesman for the patients this morning told Radio Tonga News they are suffering from lack of tap water due to the problem at the main water supply system.

 

The Tonga Water Board confirmed there’s a problem with the water pump Device located at Mata ki ‘Eua and all the pipes connected to this main engine are cut off temporarily while repair work is being carried out.

 

Ward Patients at Vaiola told Radio Tonga News, although the hospital has an alternate water reservoir but that doesn’t cater for all their water needs especially the bathroom and related facilities.

 

Radio Tonga News contacted Vaiola for a comment on the issue and a spokesperson said, they are currently working together with the National Emergency Management Office NEMO to solve the problem.

 

Tonga Water Board hopes the repair work will be completed later today.
