MALAYBALAY CITY (BukidnonNews.Net/15 March 2019)– Due to limited water supply brought by the El Niño phenomenon, the Malaybalay City Water District (MCWD) has implemented water supply rotation since last week.

The MCWD in its recent advisory said the schedule of water supply interruption will be implemented daily in its service area.

In most areas, residents will experience no water supply for at least three to three and a half hours a day.

Water interruption will be experienced in Brgy. 2 up to Brgy. 11 and Sitio Natid-asan in Brgy. Casisang from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. every day.

A portion of Brgy. 10 and 11 will begin losing water supply at 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 every morning.

The entire Brgy. Kalasungay will have no water from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. daily and from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Moreover, Zone 1 of Brgy. Kalasungay from Rubio Compound will have water interruption every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

NHA phase 1, 2,3,4, and 5, Paglaum Village, Kubayan Village, Avinca Village, Grema and Ofelia Subdivision will have no water supply from Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 1:00 p.m. up to 4:00 p.m. The said areas  will also have no water supply starting 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. every Saturday and Sunday.

Barangays San Jose, Laguitas, Linabo, Aglayan and Cabangahan will have water interruption from Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily. The said places will also have no water supply every Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The MCWD advised concessionaires to store water in clean water storage prior to the scheduled water interruption.

MCWD usually experienced low water supply during dry season annually as its main source of water from Kibalabag River decreases in volume capacity.

The MCWD is buying water supply from Kibalabag water source controlled and managed by the City Government of Malaybalay.

As of July 2018, MCWD has 17,640 active connections. (Contributed to BukidnonNews.Net by Mel B. Madera)
