MIWD convenes management team for bulk water project

Iloilo City (29 July) -- Metro Iloilo Water District General Manager Engr. Lee Jayme Jalbuena has already convened a project management team for its bulk water supply project expected to be completed next year.

Jalbuena said in the agency's press release that the team will be responsible for the technical design and estimate of the proposed project, the conduct of feasibility study and the crafting of terms of reference for bulk water.

The proposed project is expected to provide about 23 percent of the MIWDs existing supply and serve part of its 31,400 consumers in Iloilo City and the neighboring municipalities especially those that have intermittent low water pressures.

To be undertaken through a competitive bidding, the bulk water supply project is estimated to be completed in a year commencing from the conduct of feasibility study this July until the completion and operation of facilities next year.

The project involves the supply of potable bulk water to MIWD by third party suppliers on a specified water quality and quantity standards over a period of 10 years.

Under the project, the water to be delivered shall be injected directly to MIWD?s existing 200mm diameter-line at areas specified by MIWD at a minimum pressure of 40 psi, however, the bulk water supplier shall be able to overcome a maximum pressure of 60 psi at any given time.

Initially, the water supplier shall deliver to MIWD potable water at a minimum volume of 2,000 cubic meters per day and at a required flow rate of 84-124 cu. m. per hour.

The MIWD intends to put in an additional 20,000 cu. m. of water daily from the project to augment its present supply.

Some of the local water districts in the country that also resorted to bulk water supply are Metro Cebu, Cagayan de Oro City and Baguio City Water Districts. (MIWD/PIA) [top]
