Water supply improvements underway in Tacloban City

TACLOBAN CITY – The water supply project in this city is back on track as contractors resume pipe-laying for the city's water lines. 

According to the General Manager of the Leyte Metropolitan Water District (LMWD), Ronnie Cornico, work on the project had been halted in recent weeks due to heavy rains. However, as of today, the project is once again moving forward.

Currently, the water district in Tacloban has two plants that supply water to consumers, even during bad weather. A large reservoir in Brgy. 39 Calvary Hill is also being tested and is expected to provide better water pressure and supply to the city's northern areas.

The reservoir is currently awaiting the arrival of a controller, and once it is installed, it will be put to use.

Meanwhile, the gate valves located at the government center in Palo, Leyte, have also been scheduled for a replacement to improve the water supply to the San Jose-Manlurip area of the city.

 According to Cornico, the water supply to the northern areas of Tacloban has been improving, and more and more residents are applying for water connections.

For residents who do not have water connections, public faucets are located in housing areas where they can get water. However, these faucets may shut off during times of low water supply. 

To further improve the water supply in the city, the LMWD is also working on an additional water treatment plant in Pastrana Leyte that will supply water to the entire city of Tacloban. —iTacloban (with reports from CIO)
