Mayor Alfred Romualdez and representatives meet to address the water woes in the Yolanda housing projects
In line with the meeting held last week to address the water woes in the Yolanda housing projects of the National Housing Authority, officials from the Leyte Metropolitan Water District together with Mayor Alfred Romualdez and some representatives convened on Wednesday afternoon (May 12).
Among the highlighted discussions were the issues and ongoing progress of water system installation in the following resettlement areas: Lion’s UNDP, Northhill Arbours, Villa Sophia, Greendale 1, New Hope Village, and Knightbridge Residences. Initially, for this phase 1 project, the water district targets to provide water supply service to about 5, 105 houses from the said areas late this year.
Despite the challenges, the chief executive looks forward that this will be a step closer towards the goal of giving better water services to all Taclobanons, as the city is scrambling to come up with the solution to have water connection for its residents, particularly in the north.
