President Benigno Aquino 3rd on Friday witnessed the signing of a concession agreement between the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) and a foreign water resources company for the Bulacan Bulk Water Supply Project (BBWSP) at the Barcie International Center in Malolos, Bulacan. Aquino said that the water project should provide fresh water supply, sourced locally, to 3 million people in Bulacan. Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado, who initiated the project when he was a congressman, said the BBWP is a dream come true for the people of the province. BBWSP seeks to provide treated bulk water to 24 districts in Bulacan, increase the number of households served, and meet increasing water demand.
