COWD completes 95% supply capacity in CdeO

by Elaine O. Ratunil

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, January 6 (PIA) - The management of the Cagayan de Oro City Water District (COWD) has announced that the rehabilitation of the Booster Pumping Stations and production facilities in Macasandig is almost completed.

Supply of treated bulk water from Rio Verde has likewise resumed. This brings COWD supply capacity in the East Service Area to 95% and 90% in the West.

Meanwhile, stabilizing the pressure in the distribution system is COWDs next main activity.

In order to carry this out, access to identified point sources which was meant to be a temporary measure to provide water supply while rehabilitation of its facilities was ongoing, will have to be strictly controlled.

Based on its latest advisory, this is necessary to ensure that exit points will be minimized and that sufficient water pressure shall be made available to the individual service connections.

It has directed that effective today, January 6, only Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) firectrucks shall be allowed access to fire hydrants and said extractions should be solely for emergency fire cases only.

BFP and the volunteer firetrucks and the rest of the tankers will have to source their supply for water deliveries to the evacuation centers only from the Macasandig Booster station and Kauswagan sub-office.

COWD calls on concerned firetrucks and the rest of the tankers to log such extraction with the guard-on-duty.

It can be recalled that the supply of water in Cagayan De Oro was severely affected when tropical storm Sendong ravaged the city on Dec. 16 last year.(PIA-10)
