Oscar Violago, president of San Lorenzo Builders and Developers Group Inc., said their proposed hydropower plant will be located at barangays Gumalang and Lamanan in Calinan District. He said they will be sourcing their water mainly from the Davao River and only a fraction from Tamugan River.
He said they will build a "low-dam," which is only about 25 meters high at elevation of 209 meters, which is below the 300-meter threshold for the recharging zones of the Davao water aquifers.
Thus, the fear of most communities for possible flooding when the dam releases water during rainy season is far from happening, he said.
Violago said that contrary to the fear of some, the dam could even ease the flooding problem in the city since they will divert huge volume of water from the Davao River to their hydroelectric dam, thus decreasing the influx of huge volume of water directly to the Davao River especially during heavy rains in Calinan area.
The project cost is estimated to be around $500-600 million. The city stands to earn P300-500 million a year from taxes for the said project, Violago said.

Developer Oscar Violago, president of the San Lorenzo Ruiz Water Development Corporation, proposes to convert the watershed into a dam. Violago believes his proposal would be the the answer to Metro Manila's water woes.
"Its potential is really to supply 1,500 million liters per day (mld), which is more than what is deducted from the withdrawal of the concessionaires in the Angat Dam, around 1100 mld. If we were able to supply the 1,500 mld now, there won't be any water crisis," Violago says in an interview on ANC's "The Rundown" on Tuesday night.
With his proposal on hold for the past 17 years, Violago now accuses the Ayala-run concessionaire Manila Water Co., the National Water Resources Board (NWRB), and the MWSS of blocking his company's bid to develop the Wawa Dam Project.
"The National Water Resources Board and MWSS have given us the runaround and red tape for the last 17 years," Violago says. "Manila Water wants to grab it from us. They would want to develop the Wawa Dam project by themselves."
Violago says, while they had the water rights after their application in 1993, Manila Water managed to get a permit allowing them to make advanced collections from water consumers in 2003.
"In 2003, while my company would like to develop the Wawa Dam at no cost to the government, the NWRB allowed Manila Water to collect in advance P732 million, which they are still collecting from their consumers until now, so the P732 million must be more than P1 billion now, and that is interest-free," he says.
Following their company's success with the $687 million Casecnan Water and Power Project, today, Violago insists, his company is the best candidate to develop the Wawa Dam Project.
...
Given a full water permit, Violago says, the NWRB can count on them to develop the fully-functional dam in three years, one which, he says, would also be able to minimize floodings in Metro Manila and even help avert a power crisis.
