Davao inaugurates P81-M reservoir project

by Rose B Palacio

Davao City (18 July) -- The Davao City Water District (DCWD) is set to inaugurate today Friday (July 18) at about 8:30am the newest and newly completed 22,000 cubic meter Panorama twin reservoir in Buhangin, Davao City.

Costing Php81-million DCWD spokesperson and concurrent Finance Manager, Imelda Magsuci said that beside the existing one, another giant reservoir of DCWD will now serve the public in some parts of the poblacion area and northern parts of the city.

Construction started in 2005 and was completed on March 19, 2008. This will augment adequate potable water supply especially to residents living in the elevated and farflung areas of the northern part of the city.

In interview with local mediamen, Ms. Magsuci said OIC-Mayor Inday Sara Duterte was invited to grace the inauguration together with DCWD Manager Rodora N. Gamboa and other DCWD officials.

The giant reservoir is located on a hilltop beside Robinson's Highland in Buhangin.

At present, Magsuci said a relentless campaign has been going on to totally eliminate illegal tapping of water connections.

There are still individuals or groups making illegal water connections in the city, she said.

DCWD urged the public to be more vigilant in reporting to the water district of any illegal water connections, she further said. (PIA) [top]
