Water district assures water for summer-A A +A
Tuesday, March 27, 2012
THE Baguio Water District (BWD) assured that with its daily 50,000 to 55,000 cubic meters production from the more 50 operational deep wells, potable water supply in The Summer Capital could go beyond the Lenten season and the whole of summer.
BWD assistant general manager, Engr. Salvador Royeca, said heavy rains last year energized all our deep wells.
Despite the assurance, Royeca is asking the households to conserve and use water properly with the onset of the summer season.
More so during the Holy Week, the population of Baguio City rises when vacationers come up to Baguio to escape the sweltering heat in the low lands.
“Water is life and it is precious and we need to use water properly,” Royeca stressed.
The BWD recommends the following on how to conserve water. On hygiene, rinse a toothbrush quickly and off sink faucet while brushing. Use a glass of water to rinse your mouth.
On car wash, wet your car down quickly with the hose, then turn hose off, use a bucket of soapy water to wash wet car. Used water or recycled water is fine for washing wheels, rims, tires and bumpers. Rinse washed car quickly with hose. (Joseph B. Zambrano)
