THE Maragondon Water District launched the Bulk Water Project at the covered court of Poblacion 2-A in the municipality of Maragondon, which aims to provide treated water to their constituents. The project aims to replace the use of groundwater aquifer as the primary source of Maragondon’s municipal water requirement due to its rapid depletion from over abstraction. The lowering of the water table in some of the pumping stations currently used by the water district resulted to increased pumping cost and the deterioration of the water’s quality. The Maragondon River will be the new source of raw water for the said project. The project will involve the fitting of a submersible, overflowing weir across the narrow portion of the river for ease of abstraction and to prevent the intrusion of sea water to the intake chamber during the high tide, a river intake facility, a 200 linear meter raw water pipeline from the river intake to the treatment plant, a conventional, scalable, water treatment facility, and steel bolted treated water reservoirs. The treatment facility will be located in a four hectare property owned by Cavite Business Resources, Inc. in Barangay Tulay-A. The banks of Maragondon River near the intake will be transformed to a linear park and a river view deck with solar powered park lights continued on page 2 OPLAN TULI SA CAVITE, INILUNSAD! In its goal to supply treated water to Maragondon Water District, the Maragondon Bulk Water Supply Project was initiated thru a joint venture agreement between Watergy Business Solutions Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Macro Asia Properties Development Corporation (MAPDC) and the Maragondon Water District (MWD).
