THE town of Compostela and its neighboring areas can now experience a stable water supply after bulk water supplier Mactan Rock Industries Inc. (MRII) has built a water treatment plant in Barangay Cabadiangan.
The company also signed a new deal for a desalination plant in Mandaue City to boost its water supply capacity in Metro Cebu.
The newly completed 12,500 cubic meter per day treatment plant in Compostela, Cebu is the first inclined plate lamella clarifier system implemented in Cebu and will be utilizing surface water from Cotcot River.
The lamella clarifier is one of the approved products and processes in England for use in public water supply, the company said.
“Lamella clarifiers are known for their high efficiency clarification process. Choosing lamella over other clarifying systems is a big boost to our aim of providing safe, clean drinking water to consumers,” said MRII president Lito Maderazo.
Meanwhile, the new desalination plant in Guizo, Mandaue City is scheduled for completion in six months’ time. This will be MRII’s 12th desalination plant in Cebu and will have a capacity of 3,000 cubic meters per day.
With the combined 15,500 cubic meters daily production from the Barangay Cabadiangan and Guizo, Mandaue City plants, MRII’s total bulk water supply capacity in Cebu will now stand at 62,500 cubic meters per day. Of this total production 33,500 cubic meters per day is contracted to the Metropolitan Cebu Water District (MCWD).
Aside from MCWD, MRII also serves various commercial and industrial establishments such as malls, refilling stations, hotels and resorts, and other water districts nationwide.
To date, its overall build capacity is at 307,227 cubic meters per day. (KOC)
