THE Commonwealth Utilities Corp. did not experience issues with its water supply on Saipan during the dry season, CUC Executive Director Gary Camacho said.

On Rota, however, “the water cave does have a low level, but there’s no impact on the community,” he added.

With the onset of the rainy season, the CNMI water supply will increase, Camacho said.

As for the CUC water team, he said it continues to detect and repair leaks so that all Saipan customers will be provided with a 24-hour water service.

The recent improvements to the water infrastructure of the public utility include  new tanks in Papago and As Terlaje, Camacho added.

“Our corporate strategy is to be an exceptional service provider that puts customers first and benefits the community,” he said. “We strive to deliver our services in a reliable and affordable way for everyone in our community.”

He said CUC is supplying water to its customers through an extensive, largely underground network of over 400 miles of water mains, as well as associated valves, holding tanks, pumping stations, and secondary disinfection plants.

CUC, he added, aims to manage and operate this network efficiently.
