Pernia says current supply crisis proves need for Department of Water


Is he a victim of the daily struggle as well?

Economic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia seems to be feeling the pinch of waterless days as parts of Metro Manila reel from a water crisis brought about to clients of Manila Water.

The east zone concessionaire has been implementing rotating water supply interruptions for a week now as they struggle to meet the water needs of their customers, mostly in Mandaluyong, Pasig, and Quezon City.

For Pernia, this stresses the need for Cabinet-level attention.

” It’s a real shame we have a Dept. of Energy, which is important, but we utterly lack an Apex body–a Dept of Water–to ensure water supply and distribution–an indispensable VITAL need,” Pernia said. “Water is life. As the age-old saying goes, ‘ok lang kung walang ilaw, basta lang may tubig!'”

This stinks!
