Cam Sur, Masbate get assistance for water systems project

NAGA CITY—Camarines Sur and Masbate, which were identified as two of the ten poorest provinces in the country, will receive assistance for the development of potable water supply systems.

According to Department of Budget and Management (DBM) Secretary Florencio "Butch" Abad, P565 million has been approved for release to the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA) for said project.

The other provinces to receive said assistance are Abra, Kalinga, Western Samar, Eastern Samar, Northern Samar, Zamboanga del Norte, Surigao del Norte, and Surigao del Sur.

The fund release—sourced from LWUA’s Regular Appropriations under the 2014 National Budget—will support efforts on water source development and the construction of pumping stations and pipe lines.

The P565 million will also cover the development of Level III water supply systems, or the actual service connection of the individual households to the water supply.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
