In a recent meeting with officers of Mariveles Water District (Mariwad) and Freeport Area of Bataan (FAB) at the municipal hall, local officials that included the Mayor and Councilors Angel Sunga, Tito Catipon and Em Reyes saw a solution for Mariwad to get water from FAB Dam.
The mayor asked representatives of Mariwad and FAB to study the needed resolution to be passed by the Sangguniang Bayan to avert water crisis due to growing water demand of the town’s burgeoning population.
Mariwad already embarked on drillings to find additional water source for some villages experiencing shortage. Unfortunately, they are experiencing difficulty particularly hitting huge rocks during operations, and not finding good water source.
The population of this municipality grows rapidly being an industrial area.
