In the meantime, water rationing will still continue to areas that still have no water. For the schedule of the water rationing, you may check the official Facebook page of the Butuan City PIO as they will be responsible for posting the schedule of water rationing for the day. The role of BCWD during the water rationing is to provide the water supply for the tankers. For those concessionaires who wish to be included in the schedule of water rationing, you may contact the CDRRMO through contact numbers 09217687287 / 09561333998 / 8152607.

Furthermore, BCWD is advising concessionaires that received rationed water from the tankers, not to drink the water directly as a safety precaution. Concessionaires may boil the water before drinking or for cooking purposes. This boil advisory was issued as a health precaution to all concessionaires of BCWD.

Normal water will be restored upon complete delivery of water supply by TASC based on its contract volume.
