Manilla Water Shortage

News report on the water shortage in Manilla impacting millions.

Aired on Nov. 8, 2006. ‘Our country has always been beset by water problems like shortage and contamination. We are currently going through a water shortage and are in the face of a potential water crisis. Even with cutbacks, because of the lack of the inflow of rainfall water, there won’t be water for irrigation in Bulacan and Pampanga by March 2007. The water level in Angat will also be so low in May that it would no longer be potable because its high manganese content could no longer be treated by MWSS. Fingers are pointing to the Wholesale Electricty Spot Marketor WESM, which some water agencies say, is using too much water to generate unneeded electricity. Who is responsible for our water crisis? Ricky Carandang reports.’
