As of 8:00 a.m., Wednesday, June 29, 2016, the replacement of the 900mm diameter defective valve has been completed. However, the resumption of the facilities at the source is still pending until the turbidity level of the Taguibo River lowers down. Currently, the status of the water supply of the Butuan City Water District (BCWD) is as follows:
• Turbidity Level of Taguibo River - 48 NTU;
• 5 Pumping Stations - Full Operation.

The entire service area will still experience low water pressure while end points of the system and those located in elevated areas may be waterless.

For areas wherein there is still water in their faucets, we suggest the consuming public to store water to meet domestic needs.

Normal water pressure will be restored upon resumption of the full operation of the facilities at the source if the weather permits.

Concessionaires are also reminded of the scheduled water interruptions tonight, June 29, 2016 at 10:00PM – 4:00 AM and on June 30, 2016 also at 10:00PM – 4:00AM.

The inconvenience caused by the low water pressure is very much regretted and BCWD assures its concessionaires that it will strive to restore normal water pressure the shortest time possible.
