Water level at the Buhisan Dam, one of this city’s sources of water, has gone down, forcing the city’s lone water supplier to reduce water supply by more than half.

Edna Inocando, officer in charge of the public affairs department of the Metropolitan Cebu Water District (MCWD), said the average water level at the Buhisan Dam used to be 27 meters, but since the start of the dry spell, it dropped to 24 meters. The drop in the dam’s water level started in January as a result of the El Niño phenomenon.

The MCWD used to get 6,000 cubic meters to 7,000 cubic meters from the Buhisan Dam but the water district was getting only 2,000 cubic meters to 3,000 cubic meters in recent weeks, a drop of 60 percent.

The MCWD is supplying water to 128,000 households in four cities and four towns in Metro Cebu, such as the cities of Cebu, Lapu-Lapu, Mandaue and Talisay and the towns of Compostela, Liloan, Consolacion and Cordova.
