Tubig Pilipinas Group Inc., a subsidiary of Pure Energy Holdings Corp., said it is set to begin operations in Bacolod City and Cadiz City, both in Negros Occidental and Echague town in Isabela before the end of the year.
Tubig Pilipinas president and chief operations officer Ryan Yapkianwee said the projects would improve sanitation and provide access to clean potable water in the areas, making the LGUs compliant to the Clean Water Act of 2004.
He said for the Bacolod City project, a notice to proceed was issued by the Bacolod City Water District to the Bacolod Bulk Water Inc., which is led by Tubig Pilipinas.
In Cadiz City, Tubig Pilipinas will own, operate and maintain a bulk water supply project which will serve 3,500 households. Tubig Pilipinas said that in Echague, the company was granted the franchise and authority to construct, operate, manage and maintain a water, sewage and septic utility system.
