A project aimed at addressing inadequate water distribution in Nasipit town in Agusan del Norte is nearing completion, promising relief to affected residents and water consumers.
Janice Mira, general manager of Nasipit Water District (NVD), said the Nasipit Bulk Water Supply Project worth P38-million is already 85 percent complete.
The bulk water project, which started in January is expected to be realized in September this year, she said.
Mira expressed confidence through its strategic infrastructure initiative, using surface water sourced from the Kinabjangan River, Nasipit will have a sustainable, safe, and dependable source of bulk water supply.
Tapping the Kinabjangan River will enable the project to access both the right quality and ample quantity of water to allow the town’s water district to address the water crisis which recently plagued Nasipit, she added.
Nasipit’s current water demand is now at 5,000 cubic meters per day but NVD only produces 3,000 cubic meters.
The project will provide around 10,000 cubic meters of safe water to the NWD day per day. The treated water will be distributed to nearly 5,000 concessionaires through the town’s existing water systems. By CLC
