Pineda looks into Bacolor homeowners complaints over poor water quality
Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda has ordered a technical investigation into the water system in Xevera Bacolor on complaints of homeowners to be able to determine the cause of the reported poor quality of water there, officials said.
According to a news release from the Pampanga information office, the governor ordered the technical investigation after hearing on Monday the sides of the Xevera Homeowners Association (XHOA) and Xevera Water Services Company Inc. (XWSCI), the water provider of housing developer Globe Asiatique and Realty Holdings Corp.
Pineda formed the panel of investigators consisting of Provincial Board Members Ferdinand Labung and Jun Canlas, Bacolor Mayor Diman Datu, Pampanga Association of Water Districts representatives, Provincial Sanitary Officer Engineer Amelia Arce, XHOA president Wennie Cayabyab and XWSCI supervisor Luisito de Leon.
Xevera Bacolor has three deep well sources, according to a March 20, 2019 report of the National Water Resources Board (NWRB).
Pineda also urged the panel to determine the need to abandon Well No. 3 or to study the need to recommend a new water source.
He asked the XHOA and XWSCI to advise residents when Well No. 3 would be temporarily shut down for assessment so they could stock up on water.
