MWSS seeks masterplan for Manila Bay revival bid
MetadataShow full item record
Stressing the need for collective efforts to ensure the revival of Manila Bay, the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System called for the crafting of a masterplan to not only clean up the bay but also to ensure that sewerage and wastewater problems are addressed over the long term. The MWSS is also taking to task its two concessionaires, Manila Water and Maynilad, to re-engineer and fast track their roadmaps to provide waste-water treatment facilities to help arrest the deterioration of Manila Bay waters. “We welcome all efforts of collaboration to clean up and rehabilitate Manila Bay now being spearheaded by President Duterte and Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu. However, I strongly recommend that a masterplan, which should have been done a long time ago, is needed right now to properly address the sewerage and waste problems in Mega Manila,” said MWSS Administrator Reynaldo V. Velasco.
