THE Commonwealth Utilities Corp. provides water service 24 hours a day, seven days a week, but some areas continue to experience water service interruption, CUC Executive Director Gary Camacho said.

In San Vicente, he added, CUC is replacing the old water tank with a new one that will increase storage capacity by nearly thrice over the current one, and this is why some portions of the village are experiencing water service interruption.

The problem will be resolved once CUC replaces the 250,000-gallon tank with a 700,000-gallon tank, Camacho said.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is funding the project, the executive director said.

Other areas may experience water service interruption because CUC is replacing old or deteriorated water pipes or valves, Camacho said, adding that CUC continues to work diligently to minimize any inconvenience to its customers.

Camacho said CUC supplies water through an extensive, mostly underground, network of over 400 miles of water mains and associated valves, holding tanks, pumping stations, and secondary disinfection plants.

"Our priority as an exceptional service provider is to manage and operate this network so that our customers continue to receive  high quality, safe drinking water reliably," he added.

The public utility taps into these water sources: 135 groundwater wells, Donni Spring, and two Maui-type wells.
