SGMA WITNESSES CROSS BORDER WATER PIPELINE OPENING
Former President and now House Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on Friday witnessed the opening of the cross border water pipeline in Bulacan Street corner West Avenue in Quezon City. About 10 MLD or millions of liter per day coming from the Angat Dam allocation of Maynilad is now being given to Manila Water.
Speaker Arroyo views the map where the five to seven cross border sites are presently working on.
Speaker Arroyo told officials of the two government agencies involved in water supply to draft a committee resolution for the National Water Resources Board (NWRB) to allow the use of underground water or deep well and have a liberal interpretation of the law.
With Speaker Arroyo are Reps. Bayani Fernando and Vincent "Bingbong" Crisologo and Committee on Metro Manila Development chairman Rep. Winston Castelo, Manila Water President and CEO Ferdinand Dela Cruz and MWSS Administrator Retired Police General Reynaldo Velasco.
