MWSS finances NIA’s Bustos Dam Rehabilitation Project otherwise known as Rehabilitation of the Angat After Bay Regulator Dam. The National Irrigation Authority (NIA) presented to MWSS the project at the MWSS Board Room on March 16, 2016. The presentation coincided with the turnover of the check from MWSS to NIA amounting to P1B. Present during the event were MWSS Administrator Gerry Esquivel, NIA Administrator Florencio Padernal, Ramon Romero of NWRB, Manila Water COO Ferdinand dela Cruz, and Maynilad’s VP Marivic Punzalan-Espiritu.
The funding by MWSS is its compensation to NIA for the former’s permanent use of NIA’s 7.5 cms of water coming from Angat Dam.
