On 10 March 2022, the MWSS Regulatory Office (RO) participated in “Improving the Accessibility of the Safe Drinking Water in South East Asia to Achieve SDGs: A Webinar-Side Event of Sustainable Infrastructure and Built Environment (SIBE) 2022,” organized by Institut Teknologi Bandung of Indonesia and the International Water Association.

MWSS RO Chief Regulator Atty. Patrick Lester N. Ty, who served as plenary speaker in the webinar, discussed how the MWSS RO ensures the availability, accessibility, and affordability of water within the Concession Areas.

Chief Regulator Ty also explained the current progressive tariff structure within the Concession, wherein commercial and industrial establishments pay a higher rate compared to residential users. With this set up, customers who consume less water (including those residing in depressed areas) get subsidized.
