MWSS-RO CChief Regulatorhief Regulatory Joel Yu said that there is a growing certainty about the value of public dialogues in upholding the welfare of the Filipino consumers and addressing the mounting problems encountered in dealing with various matters related to water and sewerage services.

By promoting their welfare and protection, we inspire them to get involved in creating an optimal high-performance environment for Filipino consumers through public dialogues and information caravans,” Yu said.

He explained that the public dialogue is a venue where customers will not only raise their pressing concerns but also be engaged in a discussion with MWSS-RO and other invited government agencies whose mandate and functions cover various matters related to water service to improve policies that will benefit them.

The MWSS-RO will conduct its 4th Public Dialogue on 13 November 2014 at One Arena Cainta Gym in San Juan, Cainta, Rizal to address the escalating problems encountered by the customers involving bulk and clustered meters.
