CAASD’s emergency committee active for potential floods

Santo Domingo.- The Santo Domingo Aqueduct and Sewer Corporation (CAASD) has its emergency committee on high alert and in continuous session in response to potential flooding due to a trough affecting much of the country.

Felipe Suberví, the general director of CAASD, reported that the institution’s brigades are working around the clock to address any issues arising from the heavy rains. He emphasized that they are closely monitoring alerts from the Emergency Operations Center (COE) and the National Meteorological Office (ONAMET), the official agencies tracking the weather conditions.

“We have implemented preventive measures to ensure that our drinking water production and sanitary sewage systems are not impacted by the rains,” Suberví stated.

He further explained that the Operations Department staff are working 24/7 to promptly resolve any issues affecting water distribution. Additionally, the Project Execution Unit is keeping a close watch on the ravines undergoing sanitation interventions.

Suberví also mentioned that CAASD has a fleet of tanker trucks ready to assist with water supply in case of major service interruptions at any of the aqueducts.

“When heavy rains occur, we sometimes have to temporarily shut down systems due to turbidity, as a precaution. This is the case with the Duey and Isa Mana systems,” Suberví explained.

He added that the CAASD call center remains operational 24 hours a day to assist users with any concerns.
