More than a million residents of Davao City now have 24/7 access to potable water after the country’s largest bulk water supply project commenced full commercial operation on Wednesday.
Apo Agua Infrastructura Inc., a water business unit of Aboitiz InfraCapital Inc., inaugurated the P12-billion Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project, doubling the Davao City Water District’s (DCWD) production capacity to 630 million liters per day (MLD).
“It is not just about supplying Davao City with bulk water, it is also about ensuring that its people are provided with clean water and to improve their quality of life,” said President Marcos, who attended Wednesday’s launch.
He acknowledged the efforts of Apo Agua and Aboitiz InfraCapital as well as the role of public-private sector partnerships in ensuring water security and protecting the Panigan-Tamugan Watershed in Davao City.
