• Water firm asks Cebu City gov’t to relocate residents at Buhisan Dam


    CEBU CITY: Incessant rains in Cebu raised water at the Buhisan Dam overlooking Cebu City to a critical level, prompting the Metropolitan Cebu Water District to ask Barangay Buhisan and the city government to relocate families living downstream of the dam. The dam, which has a capacity of 10,000 cubic meters, first overflowed during the heavy downpour last September 15. Rains continued until Sunday afternoon. MCWD public affairs department manager Charmaine Kara said the Buhisan barangay council had also requested MCWD to lower the volume of water storage in the dam.
