Safeguarding public health by ensuring that WATER is SAFE is COWD's priority. Disinfection is done through injection of gas chlorine to our system. Water quality monitoring is regularly carried out through collection of samples from our sources and different points in the distribution system for microbiological testing and annual physical-chemical examination to make sure that it is compliant to the standards set by the Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water. These stringent measures ascertain that water that flows to the taps is safe. There has been zero incidence of waterborne diseases from COWD-supplied water.
To maintain safety, customers are advised to observe PROPER HANDLING AND STORAGE of water so as to eliminate possible contamination.
Water is such a vital yet finite resource. It has become even more important now that the COVID-19 outbreak poses a threat to our health. There is a need to constantly hydrate, wash our hands and keep ourselves and our surroundings clean. Everyone is thus urged to CONSERVE WATER to ensure sustainability of its supply through the 3 Rs- Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. STORING WATER in clean covered containers for use during water supply interruptions is also advised.
Let us all do our share in keeping our community clean and healthy. HAPPY WORLD WATER DAY and KEEP SAFE EVERYONE!
