Para magrasyon ng tubig! Water tankers, lorries deployed in Zamboanga City – Mayor Dalipe

Zamboanga City Mayor John Dalipe has ordered the deployment of water tankers and lorries to barangays to supply water to residents amid the El Niño phenomenon that caused the Zamboanga City Water District (ZCWD) to impose water rationing in the city.

The city government said the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO) provided water to Campo Islam, San Jose Gusu, Calarian, Sinunuc, Maasin, Cawit, Tulungatung, Arena Blanco, Mampang, Talon Talon and Kasanyangan.

The deployment of the water tankers in the east and west coast areas is every other day, it said.

Dalipe earlier urged the residents to cooperate during this challenging time as Zamboanga City has been placed under a state of calamity due to severe scarcity of water supply brought about by the El Niño phenomenon.

“Now is the time to come together and do what is best for our city. Your government is doing everything possible to assist in this latest crisis,” the mayor said.

He appealed to all Zamboangueños to conserve water and help one another.

“It is by coming together during this challenging time that we build a stronger and more resilient Zamboanga,” Dalipe said.
