500 families in San Simon village to benefit from new water system
A P6 million potable water supply system is set to replace the three-decade old facility operated by a water cooperative in Barangay San Miguel in San Simon town, officials said.
The project of the local government and the Department of the Interior Local Government is seen to provide safe and clean water to residents of the barangay, according to a Sun Star Pampanga report.
In the report, Municipal Engineer Benigno Bonus said the Level III Potable Water System would replace the three decades old existing facility operated by the San Miguel Cooperative Water System (SMCWS).
“We are improving the existing system by installing modern and bigger machines to can help cater more concessionaires,” he was quoted as saying.
Bonus added that the DILG, under its Local Government Support Fund, was providing a P4-million fund for the project while the local government would shoulder P2 million.
San Simon Mayor Abundio Punsalan Jr. said some 500 households of Barangay San Miguel would benefit from the project.
“This water system was donated by the Mother Rosa Memorial Foundation way back 1980s and we are lucky that is was maintained after all these years. And today, we are rehabilitating it to improve its services and benefit more Simonians,” he said in the report.
