Monday, July 28, 2014
CLARK FREEPORT -- The Angeles City Water District (ACWD) recently signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Clark Development Corporation (CDC) for a P17 million water project in the latter’s 256 square meter property in Little Baguio, Barangay Sapang Bato.
“Provision of potable water supply will greatly improve the hygiene and health of at least 841 families living in the area,” ACWD General Manager Reynaldo Liwanag said.
The Usufruct Agreement entered into by the two parties underscores the use of the CDC-owned land by the ACWD for the construction of a ground level water tank, pump stations, well sites and aeration/filtration sites that will fully provide the water needs of the residents of Sapang Bato with a term renewable after 25 years.
The agreement states that the CDC, being the administrator of the parcel of land, shall monitor the volume of water extracted from the storage tanks.
It likewise mandates ACWD to plant about 5,000 trees in the watershed and other reforestation areas that will be identified by the government-run office.
Water related projects are part of CDC’s Corporate Social Responsibility endeavors particularly for communities along the periphery of the Freeport.
This includes the rehabilitation of water system at San Vicente village in Bamban, Tarlac and the “Potable Water Supply Project” at Sitio Monicayo in barangay Calumpang, Mabalacat City. (PR)
