Metro Dumaguete Water inaugurated last week its 21st pumping station in barangay Cadawinonan.

The facility is projected to produce up to three million liters of potable water per day, benefiting more than 5,000 households, or around 20,000 Dumagueteños in the areas of Batinguel, Taclobo, Motong, and Daro.

MDW Chief Operating Officer David Berba highlighted the pumping station’s significance in the organization’s goal to meet the water production and quality demand for consumers in Dumaguete City.

“The new pumping station is proof of our commitment to excellence and the welfare of the community we serve. It represents a vital step forward in ensuring the sustainable provision of clean and safe water for the people of Dumaguete City. Moreover, it is only one of the multiple joint initiatives with DCWD which are lined-up for 2024 and onwards,” he said.

The new pumping station is connected by a transmission pipeline from Brgy. Cadawinonan to Brgy. Candau-ay, which will improve service to consumers in the northern part of Dumaguete.

Additionally, it is equipped with a generator set to ensure operationality during power outages.

Another added feature is the use of a Variable Frequency Drive that promotes energy and machinery efficiency.

“We are grateful to Metro Dumaguete Water for its continued support to our barangay. Our residents will benefit with the energization of PS21 in terms of safe and constant water supply,” said Cadawinonan Barangay Capt. Venus Cataylo.

Meanwhile, the ceremonial inauguration was also the opening salvo of MDW’s third year anniversary. Operating since February 2021, Metro Pacific Dumaguete Water is a joint venture company of Dumaguete City Water District and Metro Pacific Water. The joint venture aims to provide improved water services to Dumaguete and nearby communities. (PR)
