Davao City Water District advises customers of two separate sets of water service interruption.
First set is on August 12 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. affecting these areas served by Lubogan Water Supply System: Green PraireSubd., Bangkas Heights, Rosalina Village Phase II, D’ Garden Subd., Toril Country Homes, Mindawide Relocation, Vergul Village, IWHA Subd., Greenland Subd., Pepsi Cola Village, Summerland, Sto. Rosario Village, Dusnai Village, Unggay Compound, Albeza Compound, Divino Compound, Tayo Compound, Bartolini Compound, Torrejos Compound, Paderog Compound, Bliss Compound, Ideal Village, Saavedra Neighborhood Assn. Inc., Kristina Homes, Batulosa Village, Sison Subd., FarlandSubd., Dacoville Subd., Don Lorenzo Subd., New Creation Subd., DLF Village., Toril Country Homes, Villa Mercedita, Ocean Cove I, Villa Josefina Subd., and Puroks 1, 2, and 3 in Upper Lubogan.
DCWD’s Lubogan Production Well No. 1 will be affected by Davao Light and Power Company’s power interruption on said date needed to facilitate the upgrading of its primary lines in Alambre, Toril. Although the power cut is shorter in duration, DCWD needs additional time for re-switching on of the affected facility, pressure build up, and line delivery, thus the longer duration of water service interruption.
Second set will also be on August 12, 2017 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. affecting Davao Development Foundation (DDF) Village and Mandug Proper. This water service interruption will give way to the interconnection and looping of pipes and tapping of blow-off valveto the existing pipeline as part of the construction of Mandug Steel Reservoir nos. 2, 3, and 4 and appertaining transmission line. The entire project is part of the preparation works for the Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project of DCWD which upon completion in 2019 will increase water pressure and improve water supply in Davao City.
On behalf of the DCWD management, general manager Engr. Edwin V. Regalado asks for the understanding and cooperation of would-be affected customers and advisesthem to store enough water prior to the scheduled water service interruptions. Water supply may be restored earlier if work goes smoothly or later if unforeseen problems arise.
