The government will address the two main issues face by the people of ‘Eua daily, first is their water supply and road maintenance throughout the island.

The Prime Minister Hon. Dr Pohiva Tu’i’onetoa says, water sanitation is paramount and its clear the people want their water supply to be clean for their daily needs and the Government is ready with a solution to the issue.

He adds, about 650 water tanks are needed to install in every household on the island so people can have their own water tanks and will not heavily rely on the main water supply system for their basic needs.

He adds another two new water tanks should also be in place to help with water distribution.

While on the island yesterday, the PM toured the island to witness major projects underway since Gita.

He adds Government will continue with its development project especially the wharf and its main infrastructure as ‘Eua will be hosting large events this year such as the beginning of the Royal Agricultural Show and the FWC annual conference.

The Prime Minister and his delegation including cabinet Ministers departed ‘Eua this morning after visiting the island to assess the impacts from TC Tino.
