City needs P250 M to upgrade its sewage treatment plant
by PIO release

The local government needs at least P250 million to rehabilitate and upgrade the over 30-year-old Baguio Sewage Treatment Plant at South Sanitary Camp.

City Environment and Parks Management Officer Cordelia C. Lacsamana said the total rehabilitation of the plant is a long-term project of the city government and subject to a public-private partnership (PPP) pursuant to the city’s PPP Ordinance.

Aside from the installation of a dewatering machine within the plant, Lacsamana said that the city will be implementing the construction of a P250 million septage project in the area to allow the all-out acceptance of sewerage connections to reduce the pollutants released to the Balili River, especially at the Baguio side of the river system. The project is expected to be completed by December.

Lacsamana said the rehabilitation cost of the treatment plant waste water will increase its capacity at a rate of 20 cubic meters per operating time, an added capacity to the overloaded sewerage treatment plant.

Based on data obtained from Cepmo, the inflow of waste water to the plant is 12,000 cubic meters per day contrary to its designed capacity to treat only 8,600 cubic meters per day.

Part of the city’s long-term projects, Lacsamana said, is the put up of four satellite septage treatment plants in the different parts of the city, specifically along the Balili, Bued, Galiano, and Ambalanga rivers, to help in treating the increasing volume of sewerage waste water from the increasing number of households in the city.

Lacsamana said one of the upcoming projects of the local government, in coordination with the Department of Public Works and Highways, is the construction of a P140M sewerage treatment plant within City Camp to treat waste water from 16 surrounding barangays in the area.

She admitted that there are three structures that are directly affected by the project and the concerned government agencies and the local government are implementing interventions to address the issue of the structures affected by the project.

“We are just waiting for the funding for the project from the DPWH. We hope that the funds will be included in the agency’s budget next year so that the put up and operation of the plant will help address our problem in the wayward disposal of sewerage waste water not only from the households, but also from the commercial establishments around the city,” Lacsamana said.

She said the short, medium, and long-term interventions will be put in place by the concerned agencies and the local government will minimize problems in the disposal of the city’s sewerage waste water.
