                                                       (Monday, 5 April 2010)

                                  The Situation Report of 5 April 2010, with relevant photos, is posted at
                 It may also be downloaded as a Word file from

POWER: Power supply has been relatively stable in the last three weeks but the prospects of rotating
outages are likely this summer. The schedule of outages if relayed to Ateneo early will be
announced via email. If the notice is received only an hour or two before the scheduled outage, the
information will be disseminated by phone.

WATER: Last Tuesday, 30 March Manila Water Company, Inc. (MWCI) conducted maintenance work
at the Loyola Heights campus. MWCI water supply was disrupted for four hours but this was not felt on
campus as cisterns and overhead tanks were full and supplied water. The maintenance work did not
expose the distribution lines to contamination but just the same, water samples will be taken for
evaluation this month.
TRAFFIC: Graduation 2010 traffic and parking data collected by campus security is shown below:


   1.   The number of people at the Loyola Schools’ Baccalaureate Mass is based on the number of chairs counted by security before the
        mass. All the chairs were occupied.
   2.   The number of vehicles that entered the campus for the commencement exercises and the number of vehicles that parked on
        campus were also counted by security. This information is useful in the preparation for the next commencement exercises. .
   3.   Campus security claims that traffic and parking for the commencement exercises this year were easier to manage compared to
        previous years due to:

            a.   Deployment of more guards by school units to manage the flow of traffic and regulate parking:

                        i.   Grade School – from 14 to 23 guards
                       ii.   Loyola Schools (SOM & SOSE) – from 18 to 25 guards
                      iii.   Loyola Schools (SOSS & SOH) – from 18 to 27 guards
                      iv.    High School – from 14 to 23 guards
            b.   Implementation of a one way scheme at the High School carpark and no double parking.
            c.   Effective use of shuttle service by the Grade School and Loyola Schools for faculty, staff, and students. Many vehicles
                 parked at the North and Northwest carparks instead of crowding at the High School and Bellarmine parking.
            d.   The High School’s electronic board that directed vehicles where to park.

  4.    Staggered commencement exercises of the adjacent schools. Katipunan traffic was not adversely affected by the staggered
        commencement exercises of Kostka School, Miriam College and Ateneo.

                                                                                          for planning purposes as similar activities
