DAVAO City Water District has scheduled three separate sets of water service interruption to give way to completion of separate service improvement projects.
First set is on June 22 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. affecting the entire Doña Luisa Village Phase 2. This water service interruption is needed for the tapping of pipes for the mainline improvement in the affected area.
Once completed, the project will allow for accommodation of additional service connections.
Second set will also be on June 22 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. affecting some Baliok areas, particularly, the entire Rosalina Village III and Mindawide Relocation. This water service interruption will give way to the tapping and looping of pipes for the mainline improvement at Susana Homes III to Rosalina Village III in Baliok which is a component of Dumoy Production Well No. 39 Project.
The entire project, once completed, will improve the water supply in certain areas served by Lubogan Water Supply System.
Third set is from 9 p.m. of June 22 until 9 a.m. of June 23 affecting the entire Bago Gallera, particularly, Lumansoc Compound, Purok Bayanihan Bago Gallera Settlers Association Inc., Villarubia Compound, Suhai Village, Small Communal Farmers Association Inc., Sitio Nalum in Baliok, Samantha Homes Subd., Spring Valley Village, Mega Homes, Kaliraya Subd., Gallera de Oro Subd., Davao New Town Relocation, Carmelo Porras Subd., Reldo Village, San Lorenzo Village, Kabataan Center Assn., Toscana Subd., Amiya Residences, Sitio Durian, and Upper Rapnaga and some Bago Aplaya areas: Saavedra Neighborhood Assn Inc., Purok 13 Seaside, Bavnai Village, and Catotal Subd. This water service interruption will give way to the tapping, interconnection, and looping of various pipes as part of the preparation works for the Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project of DCWD, which upon completion in 2019 will improve water supply in Davao City.
On behalf of the DCWD management, general manager Engineer Edwin Regalado asks for the understanding and cooperation of would-be affected customers and advises them 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.
