'TIEZA to regulate Boracay water utilities'
MetadataShow full item record
The Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) has asserted its regulatory powers over water utilities in Boracay and other tourist areas, citing a recent ruling of the Office of the President (OP). TIEZA said it received the OP ruling dated Sept. 5, which affirmed a decision of the Department of Justice (DOJ) that gave the agency the sole authority to regulate water utilities, including waterworks and sewerage systems, in Boracay. “The decision denies the motion for reconsideration filed by the National Water Resources Board (NWRB),” TIEZA said in a statement.
