Looks like water consumers in parts of the city’s Poblacion as well as in Nazareth and Macasandig areas will be having extended water woes during the Christmas celebration up to next week after the Cagayan de Oro Water District (COWD) released an advisory regretfully informing its customers of extended repair work of its Production Well No. 9.
Accordingly, this is due to the submersible cable which still has to be shipped from Manila. To mitigate the supply deficiency, COWD are currently undertaking valve adjustments to improve pressure in the affected areas.
It can be recalled that the said production well which is located at Biasong, Macasandig underwent emergency repair last week (see below) causing a 5-day water interruption.
