Emergency Water Interruption

Posted Date:       09/15/2020

WHEN:

September 26, 2020, Saturday, from 8:16AM with no estimated time of resumption

WHERE:

Low water pressure to no water in all areas served by Cabantian and Panacan water supply systems.

WHY:

Temporary stop operation of Indangan Production Well and Panacan Production Wells no. 3, 4 and 6 due to single phasing. Thus, said facilities will not be able to operate and produce water and in turn, will not be able to supply water to the affected areas.

Notes:

1) Water supply may be restored earlier if emergency works go smoothly or later if unforeseen problems arise.

2) DCWD conducts line flushing after repair works are completed. However, once water is restored, customers are advised to open all faucets and allow water to run for at least two minutes. Do not drink tap water immediately but if needed, boil water beforehand as safety precaution.

3) This information is disseminated through print and broadcast media, DCWD website (www.davao-water.gov.ph), official Facebook page (www.facebook.com/davaowater) and telephone voicemail 235-3293 (DCWD).

4) Always store water in clean and covered containers for emergency use. Leak repairs, downtime in DCWD facilities, and other unforeseen circumstances may cause low water pressure to no water.
