The Water Situation in Citihomes

Malanang, Opol (Misamis Oriental) – Homeowners of Pag-ibig Citihomes Subdivision of this town are either hitting the bed late or waking up too early to keep up with the terrible schedule of water supply in the subdivision.

Today, water service is only available from late evening to early dawn. The new water schedule was only implemented after Tropical Storm Sendong devastated Northern Mindanao in mid-December last year.

The subdivision used to enjoy a better schedule before Tropical Storm Sendong. Water availability was from 10 AM up to 5 AM the following morning.

Water service is provided by Cagayan de Oro City Water District (COWD). COWD claims that all their production areas are already fully operational.

COWD is imposing a price hike. Minimum water consumption is now at P210.00 fromP168.00. Unfortunately, the increase in price is not coupled with better service; water service to the subdivision is so terrible today.
