PrimeWater-BACIWA Launches Water Supply Initiatives to Brace for El Niño 

PrimeWater, together with its joint venture partner, Bacolod City Water District (BACIWA), has acquired a new water truck intended for deployment as contingency plan for the ongoing El Niño phenomenon. This acquisition is part of the water supply initiatives aimed at mitigating the impact of the El Niño on the current water supply. 

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) recently classified Negros Occidental as the only Visayan province experiencing drought or below-normal rainfall for three consecutive months due to the ongoing El Niño phenomenon. 

The newly acquired water truck can store up to three cubic meters of water and will be used for delivering water in the event of service disruptions across multiple barangays. 

“The addition of the new water truck will enhance our ability to promptly deliver supplies to areas affected by any service interruptions. This initiative is just one of numerous plans and programs we are implementing to address the water supply challenges presented by the ongoing El Niño phenomenon,” says PrimeWater Branch Manager Farah Monteclaro. 

Additionally, PrimeWater-BACIWA has also recorded a total of 772 leak repairs carried out since the beginning of the year to mitigate water losses and reinforce its water conservation efforts.  Plans for an upcoming pipelaying project and bulk water supply agreement in the future are also in place as part of its efforts to address the ongoing dry season. 

“PrimeWater and BACIWA assure our consumers that we are continuously developing more proactive measures to mitigate the impact of the consistent dry season on the water services we provide to our concessionaires,” concludes BACIWA General Manager Mona Dia Jardin.
