Manila Water’s used water management campaign recognized
Manila Water’s first and only environmental campaign focused on the need for used water management was featured in the recent Taga-Alog Stakeholder Conference 2018 organized and spearheaded by the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC), National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) and Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA).
Called Toka Toka advocacy, Manila Water encourages individuals and entities to do their share or ‘Toka’ by pledging any of the following ownable acts such as: availment of desludging of septic tanks every five years; connecting to Manila Water’s sewer network, (iii) promote the formation, education and communication of community sanitation and used water programs and proper waste segregation and disposal.
The project is Manila Water’s one of major interventions to help in the rehabilitation of Pasig River.
The Taga-Alog Stakeholder Conference 2018, on the other hand, is a creative campaign for the promotion of Pasig River as a space for cultural identity and collective memory.
