ACCESS TO WATER “DREAM”, NOW A REALITY
The dream of Dreamville Subdivision in terms of having a water supply has come to reality as the inauguration of its water system was held earlier today, November 9, 2021.
Ushering in a fresh chapter of strengthened coordination between the city government and local water district, the resettlement community located in Brgy. 93 Bagacay; funded by the Catholic Relief Services (CRS), an international non-government organization, is delighted to have a direct potable water supply in their respective faucet.
One of those who expressed gratefulness was Lola Edita Barrantes, 66 years old, who has settled for a rationing system upon her family’s transfer to the subdivision. According to Barrantes, she sees this as an early Christmas gift, noting that their usual Php 30.00 to pay for those who would fetch water for her family will now be saved for their other needs.
Since the new water system has commissioned two phases (Phase 1 and 3), residents will now enjoy up to 17 hours a day of uninterrupted water supply. This will service 883 families and water from this system will be coming from the pipelines of the Leyte Metropolitan Water District that is laid in the main highway which will be piped to the pipeline in the village.
CRS, meantime, is closely coordinating with Prime Water Leyte Metro and LMWD and other concerned agencies such as Electric Cooperative (LEYECO) for the commissioning of Phase 2, hopefully before the yuletide season.
This milestone is just part of Mayor Alfred’s commitment to ensure that water connectivity to Tacloban North concessionaries will be delivered at the earliest possible time.
Leading the inauguration and opening of the valve was LMWD Chairman Bobby Muñoz, accompanied by General Manager Pastor Homeres, representatives from PWLM, CRS, and its HOA, and Chief of Staff Atty. Jojo Lacanilao, who stands on behalf of the city mayor.
