To augment the water supply through additional water source, an exploratory/ production well-drilling commenced on November 18, 2013 and was successfully completed last August 29, 2014 Brgy. Mabuhay.
This new water resource can generate up to 70 liters of water per second which can accommodate a total of 7,000 households.
This project contracted to CG Integra Corp had amounted to P3,014,614.30.
Prior to the implementation of this project, a public consultation was held last December 19,2013 to inform and answer concerns from the immediate community. The activity was participated by the Barangay Mabuhay officials, Zoning officer from the City Planning and Development Office, National Irrigation Administration and City Environment and National Resources Office.
Moreover, the construction of its pumphouse has already started last September 25, 2014 and is estimated to finish on December 8, 2014. This will augment supply for the Central System to address water shortage during peak demand hours.
