CEBU ARTESIAN WELLS NO LONGER SUSTAINABLE

0

CEBU CITY: A ranking Cebu City official said artesian wells in the city’s urban and mountain barangays are no longer sustainable because of saltwater intrusion into the city’s aquifer. Engr. Dionisio Gualiza, chief of the Department of Public Services, said he wants the Cebu City Government to no longer allow the construction of artesian wells both in the urban and the mountain barangays. Based on the records of the DPS Patubig Project Division in 2012, there are some 1,345 artesian wells in the city.
