Part of Davao City waterless in 3 days

 By Anthony S. Allada

SOME parts of Davao city will be waterless in the next three days as the Davao City Water District (DCWD) is set to tap pipelines from its mainline on September 25, 28 and 29.

DCWD spokesperson Imelda Magsuci said on Tuesday, Sept. 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or for eight hours, Dona Luisa Teachers Village and its immediate environs will be waterless for the tapping of newly installed 4-inch diameter Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) pipeline to the existing 6-inch diameter mainline.

On the same day at 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. or four hours of water service interruptions will be implemented at four housing villages in the southern part of the city for the tapping of pipelines to the mainline.

The third schedule will be on Sept. 28 and Sept. 29 from 9 a.m. Friday to 2 a.m. Saturday, or a total of five hours at the Davao City Overland Transport Terminal (DCOTT) and its neighboring areas for the same reason of tapping of the newly installed 4-inch diameter PVC pipeline to the existing 6-inch mainline.

Magsuci said water supply may be restored earlier if work goes on smoothly or later if unforeseen problems arise.

She said downtown residential areas may experience low pressure and appealing the consuming public to understand.

The would-be affected consuming public is hereby advised to store water in clean containers, she added. (ASA)
