On September 14, the MWSS Regulatory Office (RO) was recognized as “Champion of Trees” at the 2021 Annual Million Tree Challenge (AMTC) Recognition and Awarding Ceremony. MWSS RO Chief Regulator Atty. Patrick Lester N. Ty received the award on behalf of the agency during the online event.

The AMTC—a five-year watershed rehabilitation project spearheaded by the MWSS Corporate Office (CO)—is in line with the Expanded National Greening Program of the Government and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and is conducted in partnership with various organizations in the public and private sectors.

The 2021 Champion of Trees Award is a testament to MWSS RO’s commitment to the AMTC, which aims to rehabilitate the seven (7) critical watersheds that supply water to Metro Manila, Rizal, Bulacan, and Cavite.

The MWSS RO has committed to plant another 23,000 seedlings this year in support of the project.
