Flushing at Kinilis Potable Water System Rehabilitation Project

Mahintana, through its Ridge-to-Reef Program, conducted flushing and cleaning activities at the Agos Project – Kinilis Potable Water System at Prk. 8, Brgy Kinilis, Polomolok, South Cotabato. Mr. Ferdinand Frigillana, Municipal Health Office Sanitary Inspector facilitated the flushing and cleaning activities on January 28, 2021.
Flushing and cleaning is done to decontaminate the water system from bacteria using a chlorine solution. Water analysis results for three (3) consecutive sampling activities yielded positive to E. Coli, indicating the presence of micro bacteria in the system.

The nearby community was advised to refrain drinking water directly from the system during the process. The project informed them to store water good for two days, a day prior to the flushing and cleaning activities.
