BAYAN MUNA: MANILA WATER AT IT AGAIN SOME AREAS IN MANDALUYONG WATERLESS FOR SIX DAYS
Says another case and rebate may well be in order
Bayan Muna Chairman Neri Colmenares and Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate, today hit Manila Water for again letting their customers down.
“We have received reports that in some baranggays in Mandauyong, they have not had a single drop of water for six days now. But Manila Water said that the new supply schedule would only take effect today,” said Colmenares
“Based on a Manila Water advisory issued last night Barangka Drive and Barangka Ibaba supposedly have water between 5 a.m. and 2 p.m. But residents say that their water has not returned since it was cut at 3 p.m. last Thursday,” he added.
“In Baranggay Plainview water supply had been erratic since Friday but now they have no water since 1pm yesterday and only had access to water for 2 hours from 4am to before 6am then water was cut off again,” added Colmenares
“In Manila Water’s latest advisory they said that the water interruption would be just for 12 hours but Mandaluyong residents have already been experiencing 12 hours of water interruption since March and now in some areas 6 days straight of no water.This is simply horrendous service,” said the progressive leader.
Meanwhile Rep. Zarate said that ‘we will definitely file another complaint against Manila Water for more rebates for their costumers,”
“It is very disheartening to know that Manila Water and Maynilad have already collected fees years ago supposedly to ensure water security but look at what is happening now.
There is no water security and this will get worse unless the government acts now. We have always asserted that privatization is wrong. We must abandon privatization and government should take over these water utilities to ensure not just water security but also transparency and accountability,” ended Rep. Zarate.###
