Tiniyak ng gobyerno na kumikilos na ang Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) kasunod ng direktiba ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na tiyaking may sapat na supply ng tubig sa loob ng 150 araw para sa mga apektadong residente ng Metro Manila.
Sinabi ni Communications Sec. Martin Andanar, inihayag ni MWSS Administrator Reynaldo Velasco na kabilang sa pagkukunan ng dagdag na supply ng tubig ang Maynilad Cross-Boarder Plant (50 million liters per day); Manila Water Cardona Treatment Plant (50 mld) at mga lumang balon ng Manila Water (100 mld).
Ayon kay Sec. Andanar, tiniyak ng MWSS si Pangulong Duterte at ang publiko na gagamitin nito lahat ng available resources para maresolba ang sitwasyon.
Inihayag ni Sec. Andanar na kaisa sila ni Pangulong Duterte sa nakakaalarmang water shortage sa Metro Manila at karatig-lalawigan.
“We are one with the President on this alarming water shortage in Metro Manila and its nearby areas. Water, being an essential commodity, is indispensable in the daily lives of every Filipino. It is the responsibility of our long-privatized water utilities to ensure sufficient supply and distribution of water to the public. Hence, the government is ordering these private water concessionaires to ensure the efficient delivery of water. The President will not tolerate a situation wherein Filipinos are not afforded what is due them. Thus, the President has directed the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) to demand for the release of water from Angat Dam by noon time today, 15 March 2019. The volume of water to be released should be sufficient to supply the affected areas for approximately 150 days in order to alleviate the drastic effects of this problem. According to MWSS Administrator Reynaldo Velasco, they are already addressing the matter. They have identified three water sources to augment the water supply: 50 million liters per day (mld) from the Maynilad Cross-Boarder Plant, 50 mld from the Manila Water Cardona Treatment Plant, and 100 mld from the old wells of Manila Water to be reactivated today. The MWSS assures the President and the public that it will utilize all available resources to immediately resolve the situation,” ani Sec. Andanar.
