Daegu wants to partner with MWSS but yet to get an approval
Daegu, Korea’s third largest city, has submitted a proposal of cooperation project to the Philippine government through the Metropolitan Waterworks Sewerage System (MWSS).
This was announced by MWSS Administrator Reynaldo V. Velasco, who said the proposal was officially conveyed by a delegation from Daegu Metropolitan City led by Deputy Mayor for Economic Affairs Yon Chang Kim.
The Daegu project proposal covers a government-to-government cooperation support for advanced water technology demand area; improvement of inefficient operation of water purification plant and sewage treatment plant; improper sewage discharge system improvement; and installation of water purification system.
The cooperation project is expected to help MWSS address the problem of wastewater treatment and better water quality system.
However, MWSS Board of Trustees are yet to approve the proposal.
“With the government’s Build, Build, Build program, MWSS is optimistic the proposal will be acceptable to the Philippine government, notably the MWSS Board of Trustees, to fast-track the improvement of the country’s sanitation and sewerage facilities as well as a possible setting up of a monorail transport system outside and within the masterplanned 79-hectare [MWSS Complex] by Architect Jun Palafox,” MWSS said in a statement.
