On the last day of March 2019, the MWSS-CO employees showed that cleaning the Tullahan-Tinajeros River in Caloocan City is not the last of their priorities. The clean-up activity aims to give support and show awareness to communities that we should be part of the solution to the worsening problem of pollution in our lands and waters most especially the Manila Bay where the Tullahan-Tinajeros river leads to.
The activity, which was led by the Water and Sewerage Department of MWSS-CO, started with the clean-up of the estero or river at 6:30 in the morning. Some of the MWSS-CO employees even rappelled their way down the dike to the river to do the clean-up which generated some158 kilos or 26 bags of garbage. Afterwards, a program and discussion of sorts was held at the GSIS Hills Subdivision covered court tackling the nationwide movement of rehabilitating Manila Bay and readiness to climate change and calamities.
A pledging ceremony capped the event with MWSS-CO committing to participate in every clean-up activity and to always adhere to the pursuit of protecting our water sources, watersheds and infrastructure.
