The Puerto Princesa City Water District (PPCWD) has scheduled a water service interruption in some barangays from Thursday night to Friday morning to allow the repair of a leak in an old transmission line.

The water outage is expected to last from 8 p.m. Thursday night to 5 a.m. Friday morning, according to a water advisory issued on Thursday, March 17.

The cause of the outage, according to the PPCWD, is the leak repair of an old transmission line with a 16-inch diameter that runs beside the national highway in front of the Petron Gas Station on Delos Reyes Road 1 in Brgy. San Pedro.

The barangays that will be affected by the interruption, include Irawan, Sicsican, Sta. Monica, Tiniguiban, and San Pedro.

“Consumers in the affected locations and nearby areas are advised to store enough water to be used during the conduct of the said maintenance/expansion activity,” PPCWD noted in its advisory.

It also expressed apology for the inconvenience that the interruption will bring to affected consumers.
