Aklan water district holds adequate supply despite El Niņo

by Venus G. Villanueva

Kalibo, Aklan (17 May) -- The Metro Kalibo Water District (MKWD) here is assuring households it covers in four towns that it has adequate water for their daily needs despite the onslaught of El Niņo here that has already dried up wells and other water sources; and scorched farmlands in almost all parts of the province.

According to Gildane Briones, MKWD Information Officer, there is no danger of water supply running out among households here, especially in the towns of Kalibo, New Washington, Banga and Balete, and in three barangays of Batan.

"The MKWD has even a reserved supply of water stored in the elevated water reservoir at 19 Martyrs Street", Briones said.

Presently, MKWD concessionaires number 17,500. There are also proposals to annex the town of Numancia just across the Kalibo Bridge and be served by the MKWD.

The three barangays of Batan - Caiyang, Camaligan and Magubahay are located in between the towns of Banga and Balete, thereby availing of the service from the MKWD, while Lalab, another Batan barangay, is making moves to be served by the water system, being an adjoining barangay of Balete's last barangay along the national highway, Aranas.

The MKWD sources its water supply through pumping stations in various parts of Kalibo.

Presently, the MKWD is upgrading its services by changing old pipes with new ones. (PIA) [top]
