SUBICWATER has reinforced major components of the Binictican Water Treatment Plant (BWTP) with high strength carbon composites and glass fibers to lengthen its lifespan and to ensure that the water it supplies to the Subic Bay Freeport and portions of Olongapo City are free from contaminants.
The P16.5-million rehabilitation program covered the retrofitting of two sections where raw water impurities bind to coagulants: the flocculation tank and one of the two 19-MLD clarifier tanks. The internal mechanisms of these tanks were replaced, including the pipes that transport water in and out of MWTP’s various chambers.
The plant’s chemical storage was also rehabilitated and made water-proof. Repainting, beautification, and other repair works were conducted throughout the compound to bring the treatment plant to its former glory.
