Three-day water interruption starts


The Bacolod City Water District yesterday announced a three-day water supply interruption, starting today.

In an advisory, Juliana Carbon, Baciwa general manager, said they will conduct repair activities which will cause temporary water supply interruption and turbid water until June 26. Plant shutdown will start at 7 a.m. today, it added.

Affected areas include Burgos to Granada Road, Capitol Ville Subdivision, C.L. Montelibano Drive, Capitol Heights, Capitol Hills, Villa Angela, Helvetia Heights, barangays Villamonte, Montevista, and Taculing, Lacson Street, City Heights, Doña Juliana, and Libertad.

Also affected are Patricia Homes, Villa Soledad, Sunshine Valle, Jesusa Heights, Villa Villeta, Greensville, Patria Village, Buena Park, Lopez Jaena, Rizal Street, Hilado Street, Galo Street, downtown area, Rosario Street, and San Sabastian Street.

Gonzaga Street, Mabini Street, Bonifacio Street, Lacson Street, a portion of Araneta Street, a portion of San Juan Street, a portion of Mandalagan, Eroreco, and barangays Banago and Taculing will also be affected, the advisory added.

Carbon said there will be a temporary shutdown of the Bacolod Bulk Water supply to repair leakage and install a 500 mm static mixer line.

“Effects of its shutdown vary depending on the area. For areas with scheduled water supply, the schedule may be shortened and low pressure may be experienced but for areas with 24 hours water supply, consumers may experience turbidity and low pressure to no water during peak hours,” Baciwa said.

It added that subdivisions with pumping stations may only experience low pressure.

It advised affected residents to take necessary measures to avoid inconvenience.*
