The Metro Cebu Water District (MCWD) finished connecting the pipelines that would supply 18,000 cubic meters of water sourced from the Carmen bulk water supply to its consumers in northern and southern Cebu yesterday.

An eight-hour water interruption was experienced in Consolacion town, parts of Compostela and Liloan towns as the MCWD started work on the pipelines last Saturday.

Parts of Mandaue City, some parts of the North Reclamation Area in barangay Mabolo, Cebu City, and barangays Buaya, Ibo and Mactan in Lapu-Lapu City also experienced low water supply.

Engr. Ernie Delco, MCWD acting general manager, said the 18,000 cubic meters of water would supply its consumers in northern and southern Cebu.

He said MCWD would impose a P24.59 fee to its consumers, a 12 percent increase from the previous rate, starting next month.

Delco told reporters that the fee won’t be increased for 20 years based on an agreement they have with the supplier.
