39 houses without sewerage connections
by Aileen P. Refuerzo / PIO

The City Buildings and Architecture Office has identified 39 structures with septic tanks not connected to the city’s sewerage system within the Hillside-Sta. Escolastica area.  

The inspections conducted by the CBAO is part of Mayor Benjamin Magalong’s campaign to weed out illegal septic tanks to stop sewage flows into the city’s waterways and the river tributa-ries, which results in an increase in their pollution levels. 

CBAO Chief Nazita Bañez said their inspection focused on structures built over creeks as these directly drain their sewage to the waterways.

Magalong said the city will pursue the expansion of the city’s sewerage treatment system particularly the conduct of a feasibility study on the expansion of the South Sanitary Camp sewerage treatment plant and the proposed construction of two new plants, one to be put up at Barangay Rock Quarry and the other at the Slaughterhouse Compound along Magsaysay Ave.  

The 32-year-old Baguio sewarage treatment plant is among the city-owned facilities capable of treating domestic sewage coming from residential, commercial and institutional buildings within the central business district and 65 urban barangays operating 24 hours daily, 365 days a year with a design capacity of 8,600 cubic meters per day.

Its upgrade is long overdue as the volume of raw wastewater from the city’s sewer collection lines continues to increase or due to the increasing number of sewer-connected buildings thus leading to the overloading of the plant’s design capacity, inefficiency of treatment, and difficulty in complying with effluent standards.

The city also began the campaign to require buildings to address their own waste water by putting up their own treatment facilities.

Four projects are currently in the works to improve the city’s sewage treatment capability.
