CEBU CITY, March 14 (PIA) – Cebu-based bulk water supplier and its affiliates launched a nationwide campaign to provide free water for residents and communities to address the possible shortage of water supply this summer.
Antonio Tompar of Mactan Rock Industries Inc (MRII) recently announced that his company along with affiliates Pilipinas Water and Aquapure Resources will give water to the community and residents where their plants are located in the next two months.
“This is part of our companies’ corporate social responsibility and we encourage the local government units and residents to just go there and to our refilling stations and get the free water supply,” Tompar said.
Free water is available during peak hours from 5:00 a.m. until 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
They welcome also schools and hospitals but strictly not for commercial purposes.
There are four water plants giving free water. These are in Guizo, Mandaue City, South Road Properties and Cebu Port Authority in Cebu City and in Mactan, Lapulapu City.
According to Tompar, these water plants have a daily production of 35,000 cubic meters with an excess of at least 21,000 after daily consumption.
PSWRI Manager Ruben Villamor said they start giving water from March 11 until end of summer.
For Aquapure, they are giving free water from 5:00 in the morning until 10:00 in the evening.
The plants are located in Greenfields, Banilad, Mandaue City; Punta Prinsesa, Pardo, Cebu City; and in Compostela, Balamban, Liloan and Basak, Lapulapu City.
They called on other water suppliers to do the same as part of their corporate social responsibility.
This is a simultaneous undertaking in all the other areas of their operations.
They have plants in Panglao, Bohol; Midsayap, North Cotabato and in Marilao, Bulacan. (rmn/fcc/PIA7-Cebu)
