BCWD WATER SUPPLY STATUS ADVISORY August 19, 2023 (10:00AM)

The Butuan City Water District (BCWD) wishes to inform its consuming public that the entire service area will experience low water pressure to waterless situation as its bulk water supplier - the Taguibo Aquatech Solutions Corporation (TASC) - will reduce its water supply from 50MLD to 45MLD starting 12:00PM of August 19, 2023. The reduction of supply from TASC is due to low stream flow brought about by the low precipitation experienced in Butuan City.
Water pressure at Pump Station No. 1 is 52psi as of 10:00AM.
As such, most areas are experiencing low water pressure while some areas like San Vicente, Villa Kananga, part of Libertad, Ambago to Lumbocan and Masao, and other end points of the water system and elevated areas like Bonbon, Bancasi, Pinamanculan and Dumalagan are experiencing waterless situation.
Rest assured BCWD will coordinate closely with TASC to provide updates as to the status of BCWD's water supply.
Meanwhile, BCWD has already commenced with its relocation of the 10-inch diameter PE pipeline which was affected by the bridge widening project of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) near COA Regional Office.
Thank you so much for your understanding.
