ANNOUNCEMENT BCWD IN COORDINATION WITH LWUA OPENS TEMPORARY ALTERNATIVE WATER SOURCE FOR CONCESSIONAIRES (as of January 4, 2022)

The Butuan City Water District (BCWD) coordinated with the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA) for its Mobile Water Treatment Facility which will serve as an alternative water source for its concessionaires temporarily since its water system is still operating at 60% capacity. The alternative source is located in the diversion road of Barangay Bonbon near the police detachment. The Mobile Water Treatment Facility is operated by LWUA personnel where concessionaires of BCWD with vehicles can fetch water from 6:00 am – 8:00 p.m. daily with a maximum of five (5) containers per person/family starting today, Tuesday, January 4, 2022.

As of press time, BCWD has been operating its four (4) pumping stations and its bulk water supplier has delivered partially a total volume of 1,200 cubic meters per hour which is not enough to provide for the needed water supply of Butuan City. As such, majority of the service area of BCWD is now experiencing low water pressure while those at the endpoints of the system or located in elevated areas are still waterless.

As precautionary measure, for those areas with water in their taps, BCWD suggests the consuming public to store water to meet domestic needs.

Those areas with no water especially those from Barangays Masao, Lumbocan, Bonbon, Pinamanculan, Bancasi and Dumalagan can bring containers and fetch water at the alternative water source provided.

BCWD also reminds its concessionaires to boil the water when used for drinking and cooking.

In the meantime, TASC still continues with its repairs of its facility at Sitio Iyao, Barangay Anticala. Normal water pressure can only be restored by the time TASC delivers the required contract volume.

We deeply regret the inconvenience. Thank you for your continuing support to BCWD.
