MetadataShow full item record
Boracay Island Water Company, Inc. (Boracay Water) said it has completed the sewage diversion flow system from its Balabag Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) to the Manocmanoc STP, allowing more establishments and households in the Balabag area to connect to the company’s sewer network. In a statement, the firm said the flow diversion project started in March 2018 and was recently commissioned to support the sewer network and treatment facility in barangay Balabag which receives an average of 5.7 million liters of used water or wastewater per day (MLD) during regular operations, or 88 percent of its 6.5 MLD maximum capacity. Barangay Balabag is the site of the busy beach fronts of Stations 1 and 2, as well as the Bulabog Beach where many water sports activities such as kiteboarding are held. It accumulates more used water compared to Manocmanoc and Yapak, the two other barangays in the island.
