AGOO, La Union: A P400-million water facility was opened here this week,
25 years after a 1990 killer quake destroyed the water system in this town
The water services are operated by Metro Agoo Waterworks Inc (MAWI), a subsidiary of Calapan Waterworks Corp., that will supply clean and potable water from an infiltration well installed along the river banks of Aringay River in Barangay Garcia Tubao, La Union. Jolly Ting, MAWI chairman, said some 5,000 concessionaires will be initially served with water flowing through the 10-kilometer transmission lines from Tubao to Agoo and some 60 kilometers of distribution pipelines installed in households.
