Plants & Facilities

The existing water supply system is composed of three (3) wells/pumping stations and one (1) spring serving eight (14) barangays. These barangays have already benefited from the services of the Lobo Water District.

The Lobo Water District is presently utilizing concrete and steel ground tanks to store water during low demands and support the water needs of the consumers during peak hours. The reservoirs also serve as storage for fire-fighting purposes.

Transmission and Distribution Pipelines

The water district’s transmission and distribution pipelines that covers the five (5) independent water systems consists of a total of 44,355 meters of pipeline ranging from 150 mm to 50 mm in diameter with pipe materials made up of PVC, PE and GI materials.

Size                               Length              Materials

150 mm                         1,042 meters       PVC Class 150

100 mm                         9,102 meters       PVC Class 150

  75 mm                       13,548 meters       PVC Class 150

  75 mm                             70 meters       PE SDR 11

  62 mm                           210 meters       PVC Class 150

 50 mm                     18,413 meters       PVC Class 150

 50 mm                       1,970 meters       PE SDR 11

Considering that the service areas are mostly along major road networks, the system has several dead ends and has no loops that will provide good hydraulics.

Above figures do not include the pipelines in Barangay Malapad na Parang where 50 — 75 mm diameter GI transmission pipeline is laid from the collector tank to the ground concrete tank and 18 — 50 mm diameter GI distribution pipe is laid. Most of the pipelines were turned over by the barangay waterworks to the LWD. Some of the pipelines are exposed to the surface.
