The Metro Roxas Water District New Water Rates are based on the approved LWUA Board of Trustees’ Resolution No. 50, series of 2015, which will take effect on August 01, 2015 consumption (September 2015 Billing).
The customers will be assured of a sufficient supply of high quality treated water and satisfactory water pressure, 24/7. Moreover, MRWD’s repair, maintenance and customer service delivery performance will be kept at very satisfactory levels.
No, because basically MRWD is self-generating and self-liquidating. This means that it does not get any budgetary allotment from the National Government. Actually, a water district’s funding has to come mainly from internally generated revenues from its business operations, as well as from loans that may be sourced from LWUA and/or selected public or private financial institutions.
The last water rates adjustment was effected on February 2012; hence, three (3) years and five (5) months of no increase until August 1, 2015.
MRWD minimum new water rate is only P 252.00 per 10 cu.m. While other neighboring water districts water rates, as of to date, are as follows; Pontevedra WD is P 287.00, Janiuay Iloilo WD is P 288.00, Pilar WD 237.00 and Mambusao WD P 258.00.
The new water rate amounts only to P 252.00 per month for 10 cubic meters whereas the commercialized water of the same volume will cost more or less P12, 500.00.
The new water rates amounts only to P 22.90 increase per month, which will only be 76 centavos per day. The said increase is economically low than 1 SMS and even reasonably lower than 1 pandesal bread.
The new water rate increases are not really that high in terms of incremental peso expenditures. To an average customer, the new minimum water rate escalation will only entail an additional charge of 76 centavos per day which, if computed for the whole month, amounts to just P 22.90.Published: August 27, 2015
