ACWD inaugurates 2 pumping stations
ANGELES CITY— The Angeles City Water District (ACWD) has inaugurated two pumping stations which are expected to prevent the recurrence of water shortage in barangays Margot and Sapangbato.
Engineer Reynaldo Liwanag, ACWD general manager, said the commissioning of the two pumps will ensure sufficient water supply in the two upland villages which was affected by water shortage early this year.
Last June 10, 2018, the ACWD completed its P10 million pump in Sapangbato ending the water crisis which started in February this year. The water shortage stemmed from the reduction in the volume of supply the water district procures from the Clark Water.
The Sapang Bato Pumping Station has a capacity of 12 liters per second which can supply more than 1,000 households, according to Liwanag. The ACWD constructed a separate pumping station in Barangay Margot which was commissioned in July this year. Liwanag said the two pumps can provide water supply to more than 2,800 concessionaires in the two villages. Five months ago, the city council declared a state of calamity in the two barangays following the water shortage. Liwanag then assured the local officials that their pumps will be completed and water supply restored in four months.
