Maasin watershed is heavily silted
MetadataShow full item record
The Metro Iloilo Bulk Water Supply Corp. (MIB) appealed for a comprehensive multi-sectoral approach in managing the Maasin watershed which is now heavily silted. MIB is a joint venture company of Metro Iloilo Water District (MIWD) and private firm MetroPacific Water Investment Corporation (MWIC). Engr. Rolixto Jodieres Jr., MIB general manager, reported that heavy siltation has reduced the volume of raw water extracted from the dam which affected the production of the Sta. Barbara water treatment plant. Jodieres said of the 35,000 cubic meters (cu. m.) to 40,000 cu. m. produced by the dam daily, about 1,000 cu. m. is lost due to heavy siltation.
