Valencia Mayor warns vs tampering of water facilities

by Rachelle Nessia

Dumaguete City (14 September) -- Valencia Mayor Rodolfo Gonzalez Jr has issued stern warning against water consumers who are responsible of destroying water facilities and offer cash rewards to anybody who can help identify the perpetrators that would lead to their arrest.

Mayor Gonzalez issued the warning amid reports of service pipelines being cut-off by unknown individuals who are believed against the metering system implemented by his administration. This incident left residents of Barangays Pulangbato and Palinpinon without water for two days.

"We will run vigorously after those who will continue to destroy our water facilities and impose the full force of the law on them," Mayor Gonzalez told department heads in a regular meeting this week.

Individuals who can provide information to authorities that would lead to the arrest of the suspects will receive cash reward, said mayor Gonzalez.

Waterworks Supervisor Radi Dinampo said the local government already filed a case against a resident in Barangay Cambucad who was earlier identified by neighbors as responsible of destroying water pipes in the said barangay.

Mayor Gonzalez said his administration is determine to fully impose the water metering system to consumers, a measure he believes could dramatically reduce water wastage and improve water supply in Valencia. (PIA) [top]
