GAMITIN man o hindi ang tubig ng Manila Water ay mayroon babayarang minimum fee kada buwan, pero kapag walang suplay ng tubig ang nawala walang napapala ang mga kustomer.
Kaya nanawagan si Mandaluyong City Rep. Alexandria Gonzales sa Manila Water na magbigay ng rebates dahil sa abalang inabot ng kanilang mga kustomer dahil sa palpak na serbisyo.
“It has turned the routine of our lives upside down. And despite the promises made by Manila Water of relief from this crisis, situations in some areas up to now still has not improved. Residents remain sleepless – still waiting, begging and crying out for water,” ani Gonzales.
Maraming residente ang napilitang bumili ng mga drum, gallon at iba pang pag-iimbakan ng tubig upang makapag-ipon.
“In the light of this extreme disturbance that our city was made to endure, I would like to appeal to the officials of Manila Water to seriously consider offering a rebate or a discount at the very least in the water bills of Mandaluyong residents for the month of March, and at best for the duration of the crisis.”
Sa ganitong paraan, kahit papaano ay maiibsan ang epekto ng kakulangan ng suplay ng tubig.
“I think that, this is a fair enough compensation for Manila Water’s customers for their inefficiency that has caused a lot of unnecessary suffering and discomfort in the lives of the people in Mandaluyong.”
