Edwin Olivarez tells Parañaque to brace for water supply interruptions anew


Taps could run dry again so he’s telling residents to stock up.

Parañaque Mayor Edwin Olivarez was among the earliest politikos to warn people about another possible round of water supply problems, taking the cue from Maynilad about lower levels in the Angat and Ipo dams.

It was a fair warning, with the promise that the city will do what it can to ensure water supply.

“Kapag malaki ang volume ng tubig na papasok sa aming treatment facilities, posibleng umiksi ang oras ng interruption,” the politiko said. “Pero kapag kaunti ang pumasok na raw water, masusunod ang scheduled interruption na nakasaad sa ibaba. Mabuti na maging handa, at mag-ipon ng tubig araw-araw.”
