Apo Agua donates water pipelines to Barangay Tawantawan

Apo Agua Infrastuctura, Inc. (Apo Agua) has delivered 2,220 meters of water pipelines to Barangay Tawantawan in Baguio District, therefore reaffirming its commitment to its host communities over the long term. The barangay will use the donated pipelines to enhance its existing water infrastructure, thereby enhancing the delivery of water.

Present during the turnover of the water pipelines were (R-L)  Congressman Isidro Ungab, Davao City Water District General Manager Mildred Aviles, Apo Agua Operations Head Shake A. Tuason,  Apo Agua Project Manager Dorcas Ho, Tawantawan Barangay Kagawad Jimmy Enoch, and Davao City 3rd District Councilor Alberto “Abet” Ungab. 

These additional pipelines will complete Tawantawan's second water pipeline system, which will connect the barangay's newly constructed water reservoir to its current water supply. In consequence, this will increase the barangay's water supply, alleviating the pressing demand for a sufficient water supply and enhancing the lives of approximately 600 residents.

This is one of our most pressing issues in the barangay, thus this donation is of great assistance to the community. 600 additional homes have been supplied with water since we began using the pipes. Ricardo Gierran, captain of Barangay Tawantawan, stated, "I expect to have additional projects with Apo Agua that would benefit the residents of Tawantawan."

"Dako among pasalamat sa Apo Agua sa ilong kasing-kasing na paghatag ug pipes apan nadungagan og patubig ang among barangay. Pito ka purok ang nakabenepisyo sa proyekto. Nagtipon pud mi alang sa nakatabang na Water System Management nga seminar ni Apo Agua para sa paglambo sa among pagmentinar ug padagan sa among patubig sa barangay (We are grateful to Apo Agua for giving us with extra pipes that boosted the water distribution in our community. This initiative benefitted seven puroks inside our barrio. Elma Casinillo, a member of Tawantawan's Barangay Waterworks and Sanitation Association (BWASA), added, "We also thank them for providing an instructive Water System Management, which will help enhance our water system maintenance and operations).

"As we work towards completing the Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project (DCBSWP) and supplying water to the entirety of Davao City, we also continue to search for ways to offer more to our host communities. While Tawantawan is one of the host towns that will not directly benefit from the DCBWSP, we expect that bringing smaller but sustainable water solutions in their area will assist in addressing their basic water needs, as stated by Apo Agua's president, Anna Lu.

Apo Agua has also offered assistance to Davao City Water District by assisting with the expansion of its water truck effort to District II, while the DCBWSP is in the final stages of project construction. In addition, Apo Agua is now restoring roads in fourteen (14) barangays in the Second and Third Districts of Davao City as a result of its pipelaying activities.

Apo Agua has announced that it will oversee the development of the Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project in order to expedite its completion and offer 300 million liters of safe water per day to more than one million DavaoeƱos.

As the primary catch-up plan, Apo Agua would aggressively pursue as many construction work streams in parallel as possible, with Apo Agua in the lead. Apo Agua aims to begin operations by the end of 2022 despite a very tight timeline, assuming a rapid and seamless transfer.
