MWSS unveils the Angat Water Transmission Improvement Project (AWTIP) at the Ipo Dam in Norzagaray, Bulacan on 26 May 2016. President Aquino led the unveiling ceremony with MWSS Administrator Gerardo A. I. Esquivel, Governor Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado, ADB Country Director Richard Bolt, and LWUA Administrator Andres F. Ibarra, among others. Also present were Mr. Andrea Ciamei of the winning bidder Cooperativa Muratori & Cementisti–CMC di Ravenna Societa Cooperativa (CMC) and Italian ambassador Massimo Roscigno.
The project aims to improve the reliability and sustainability of the raw water transmission from Angat Dam going to Ipo Dam and finally to the treatment plants in La Mesa and Balara. This will be done through the construction of a new tunnel (no. 4) and rehabilitation works on existing Aqueduct No. 5 and interconnection of the six (6) aqueducts.
