MWSS launches the Bustos Dam Project (i.e., Rehabilitation of the Angat After Bay Regulator Dam Project) on 11 April 2016 at the Bustos Dam in Bulacan with the President as guest speaker. The project was financed out of the compensation of MWSS to NIA for the former’s use of the latter’s 7.5 cms water rights from Angat Dam.

The same speech was also occasion for the President to keynote the groundbreaking of the Bulacan Bulk Water Supply Project (BBWSP). The President highlighted the importance of the BBWSP as the first PPP water project ever and the benefits that will be derived by the Bulacan townsfolk from the project, and tagged the project as the template for future PPP water projects. The actual groundbreaking (see separate article) was held a few hours earlier at San Jose Del Monte in Bulacan which the President also graced before proceeding to Bustos, Bulacan.
