MetadataShow full item record
The Metropolitan Waterworks Sewerage System (MWSS) has called for a sustainable integrated watershed management program in the wake of the increase in the turbidity level of raw water in Ipo dam, which affected water supply in Metro Manila. The increase in the turbidity level triggered water supply interruptions in several parts of Metro Manila and nearby Bulacan. “Recognizing the importance of watersheds in supporting the water supply of Metro Manila and adjoining provinces, MWSS needs to come up with an integrated approach toward sustainable management and protection of the watersheds,” MWSS administrator Reynaldo Velasco said.
