The scheduled water service interruptions are to allow CUC’s contractor for the Finasisu Waterline Replacement Project, to perform the water meter relocation and reconnection to the new service lateral connected to the new 8-inch and 4-inch PVC main waterline for the areas of Gafo Place, Patma Place and Tun Antonio Apa Road in Finasisu. Water service to the affected areas will resume to normalcy soon after.
This project is part of the Finasisu Waterline Replacement Project funded by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, to provide a more reliable water system. The transition work is in part of the decommissioning of the old waterline to eliminate risks of contamination and frequent line breaks.
