Senate to investigate
Baciwa, Ramos says

Director Marichi Ramos of the Bacolod City Water District yesterday said BACIWA will be the first water utility to be investigated by the Senate and she is happy that, at least, the justice system in the Philippines is working.

This was her reaction to a resolution introduced by Senator Paolo Benigno Aquino “directing the appropriate Senate committees to conduct an inquiry in aid of legislation on the implementation of local water districts of their projects and the participation of the Local Water Utilities Administration in the water supply provision in the countryside to protect consumers.”

The resolution said there is a need to inquire into the loans given by LWUA to a number of local water districts, like the Bacolod City Water District, which it had granted a loan of P537 million. Reports that here said it was haphazardly implemented, to the detriment of the consuming public.moremoremore

Fishermen join 143 volunteers
paint boats for Yolanda victims
