Mayor pushes local regulation for ground water extraction

 BAGUIO CITY – Mayor Mauricio Domogan during the Weekly  Ugnayan  Presser Wednesday warned of eventual underground  water depletion if measures are not put in place to control  the extraction of ground water here.

 Domogan said, “the population of the city has risen  drastically over the years that the need for water also  increased.”

 The city’s registered population as of May, 2010 is  318,676 persons with an annual population growth of 2.36  percent excluding students who reside in the city for  educational purposes.

 Water consumption rate in the city in cubic meters total  8,614,038 recorded in 2012 with the highest consumers from  residential and commercial establishments.

 The Baguio Water District (BWD) administers the water supply  system and operates 60 deep wells with limited storage  facilities.

 The city government also passed in 2007, City Ordinance 13  or the Water Code of Baguio requiring water permit  applicants to secure clearances and requirements before  conducting ground drilling activities.

 Domogan said, “although there are measures being  undertaken to address water woes, it is important that the  city government regulate the extraction of underground water  to mitigate depletion.”

 “Our groundwater is the biggest reserve of fresh water for  the city and it makes up almost 75 percent of our water  supply,” he stressed.

 Aquifers need to be recharged by either rainwater or other  water sources but during the summer season, the recharge  rate is slow.

 “If we cannot regulate private deep wells in extracting  ground water, this might lead to depletion of our biggest  source of drinking water,” he said.

 Recently, the city mayor entered into a Memorandum of  Agreement (MOA) with Manila Water Company, Inc. for the  conduct of a feasibility study on a bulk water supply  project for the city free of charge.

 The mayor said a Public Private Partnership (PPP) for the  bulk water project can be worked out to help address water  shortage and minimize the extraction of water underground.

 Domogan  said, “the effect of depletion of the  underground aquifers can create sinkholes that may affect  the surface.” ***paul rillorta
