CITY OF MALOLOS - The people of San Jose Del Monte City (SJDMC) rejoices as an additional 30 million liters per day (MLD) raw water is allocated to the SJDMC Water District (SJDMCWD) by the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS).

This happens as Bulacan Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado, MWSS Administrator Gerardo Esquivel, Local Water Utilities Administration Administrator Eduardo Santos and SJDMCWD General Manager Loreto Limcolioc signed a memorandum of agreement that grants the request of SJDMCWD for additional 30 MLD raw water allocation at the MWSS Office, Tuesday afternoon.

Alvarado said that it is over and above the intended 5.5 CMS (approximately 475 MLD) initial supply for Bulacan Bulk Water Supply Project.

“We deserve to get more water supplies for Bulacan. So on top of the existing 50 MLD already granted to the water district, another 30 MLD will be provided to sustain and fully satisfy the water supply requirement of the various NHA housing projects at San Jose del Monte,” he explained.

SJDMCWD Gen. Manager Limcolioc said that they are very thankful for the governor’s swift action that prevented a water crisis in their city.

“Karagdagang 35,000 pamilya sa San Jose ang masusuplayan ng tubig at magbebenepisyo dahil sa kasunduang ito. ‘Yung pinapangambahan namin na krisis sa tubig ay hindi mangyayari dahil dumating ang tulong na ito sa tamang panahon,” he added.

According to the agreement, MWSS will supply the total raw water allocation of 80MLD to the water district at the prevailing rate of P3.52 per cubic meter while the water district agreed to repair the defective flow meters. ###
