Bu­la­can to in­spect big wa­ter tanks

Manila Times - - REGION - FRED­ER­ICK SILVERIO

THE provin­cial gov­ern­ment of Bu­la­can through the San­gu­ni­ang Pan­lalaw­igan ( SP) will con­duct a public hear­ing to en­sure the struc­tural in­tegrity of the full- size wa­ter tanks of dif­fer­ent wa­ter dis­tricts in the prov­ince.

The move came in the wake of the col­lapsed wa­ter tank in Barangay Mu­zon, City of San Jose del Monte ( CSJM) on Oc­to­ber 6 where four per­sons, in­clud­ing two oneyear- old girls, were killed and 44 oth­ers in­jured.

Gov. Wil­helmino Sy- Al­varado said public safety is their ut­most con­cern and timely mea­sures should be ap­plied to pre­vent such tragedy from hap­pen­ing again.

Vice Gov. Fer­nando, SP pre­sid­ing of­fi­cer, said they will sched­ule a public hear­ing soon as the Task Force formed by CSJM is cur­rently in­spect­ing the fa­cil­i­ties of var­i­ous wa­ter dis­tricts in the area.

The provin­cial gov­ern­ment will also in­spect gi­ant wa­ter tanks in the prov­ince’s 21 towns and 3 cities es­pe­cially the old ones and those lo­cated in pop­u­lated ar­eas.
