Nat Mercado started this petition to Mayor Oca Malapitan and

Metro Manila is serviced by two private companies for its water needs. 

Maynilad covers the west zone, specifically one of them is Caloocan City. There are some tendencies that Maynilad is announcing that there’s a rotating water service interruption in a specific date and time because of low water level at Angat dam and other reservoirs. We all know that having a water service interruption will also affect our time management. It may also affect our health because less water means sewage does not flow, and mosquitoes are other insects breed on still (stagnant) dirty water. Also, it causes a huge sanitation issues. Like in Clinics, restaurants, public places of convenience and many other places are forced to use very little water for cleaning. This compromises the health of the staff and people who use the facilities. In this case I want to push through this kind of problem in order for us to lessen our problems and as soon as possible not to affect our time management and especially our health.

According to https://www.un.org/waterforlifedecade/scarcity.shtml that water scarcity already affects every continent. Around 1.2 billion people.

Water Shortage can affect our mother earth in many ways such as:

  • Lack of adequate drinking water - water is important to our health. When there is shortage, people lack enough clean water to drink.

  • Sanitation Problems - lack of enough water makes cleaning of dishes, clothes and other household items difficult. They will remain dirty and unhygienic. This will have a negative effect on the health of an individual.

  • Diseases and Parasites - water is used for different domestic purposes including bathing. When there is shortage, people may not bath. Their bodies will be dirty hence susceptible to infection by diseases and attack by parasites.

The philosophical view that influences the problem is social ecology, because in water shortage it could be social and/or environmental problem, therefore we have to implement changes in our country and especially in our mother earth in order for us to avoid those consequences that may affect our health. 

If this petition will push through here are the solutions that will be applied:

  • Pollution control & better sewage treatment
  • Raise awareness to save water
  • Sustainable water management

I am encouraging each and everyone of us especially the department who are in-charged in improving and beautifying our environment to make some progress in conserving water.
