ORANI, Bataan Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA) and Orani Water District (OWD) officials formally opened the steel bolted glass fused reservoir in Barangay Mulawin of this town yesterday.

LWUA Administrator Andres Ibarra, OWD General Manager Benigno “Benny” Andres and Vice Governor Efren Pascual, Jr. led the ceremonial opening of the modern reservoir with a capacity of 1 million liters. The project is part of the 84.25 million-peso water supply and expansion project.

“The tank is located in an elevation of 85 meters above sea level thereby giving much pressure by means of gravity. The Poblacion area where the plaza and the church is located is seating on a 10 meters above sea level so you can imagine the difference in elevation that gives strong pressure of water to the homes of our clients,” Benny Andres told

The project’s fund came from OWD’s P101-million loan from KFW, a German development financial institution and Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA).

“OWD is one of the better working water districts across the country. I am happy with the way the water district is being managed,” LWUA administrator Ibarra told newsmen in an interview.

Andres also cited the significance in using this mother technology in water storage along with conventional storage equipment such as metal or concrete tanks.

“We are ready for the next 25 to 50 years in terms of services and quality of water,” the general manager assures their almost 10,000 clients.
