Uni students assess rural water conditions


A group of students from the University of California in the United States is in the country to assess water conditions for some of the rural settlements.

The visit has been organised by the Global Classroom for Peace as part of efforts to improve the quality of water for those in rural settlements.

Group leader, Professor Eric Hoek says they will work with some settlements outside Labasa on Vanua Levu.

“We have a lot of expertise and understanding in water and waste water treatment.But I think more important than that we have a lot of enthusiasm and energy for this project in particular for the people here in Fiji."

The outcomes of their assessments will be presented to the Ministry of Health and the Water Sewerage Department.
