Apo Agua 1Q Construction Update

Apo Agua Infrastructura, Inc.’s construction works are underway for Part A of the Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project which involves the construction of intake facilities, a water treatment facility and treated water pipelines.

Early this year, Apo Agua through its engineering, procurement, and construction contractor, J.V. Angeles Construction Corporation, started its construction activities at the intake and water treatment facilities. Rehabilitation of the access road to the weir site in Brgy. Tawantawan and site preparations of the water treatment plant (WTP) site in Brgy. Gumalang, Baguio District, Davao City, were the major works conducted.

Currently, preparation works for the weir construction and excavation works for the treated water tank at the WTP site have commenced. Laying of raw water pipelines is targeted to start in August.

Apo Agua is also taking steps to ensure the protection and conservation of the Panigan-Tamugan Watershed – Davao City’s next source of water. The company adopted 50 hectares of land in the watershed through the Davao City Water District’s Adopt-A-Site Project for the rehabilitation of this water source. Additionally, Apo Agua and the Davao City Watershed Management Council is working on an integrated watershed management plan specifically for the Panigan-Tamugan Watershed. These significant partnerships are aimed at ensuring the long-term security of Davao City’s water supply.

Apo Agua began its three-year construction phase with engineering design works in 2018 and targets to commence operations by the first half of 2021.
