Charisse Abalos on Mandaluyong water shortage: Magtipid tayong lahat


They are ready to declare a state of calamity if needed.

Councilor Charisse Abalos-Vargas accompanied her mother Mayor Menchie Abalos as they sat down with officials from Manila Water to demand answers for Mandaluyong’s week-long water shortage.

Abalos got the usual explanation blaming El Niño and the low water level at the La Mesa Dam for the supply problem, so the team found some short-term solutions.

The politiko told Manila Water to stick to their published schedules for water interruptions and to provide water tanks to every barangay.

For their part, the city hall will study possible rationing of supply and to better coordinate the deployment of volunteers.

The City Council is also on standby should they have to pass a resolution for the water problem.

But Abalos said not all work is theirs.

“Ang problema ng tubig ay problema natin lahat. Ang source ng tubig natin ay parepareho lang,” Abalos said.

“Ang LAHAT ay kailangang magtipid ng tubig.”

Don’t be wasteful!
