Amid the present water crisis due to dry spell, here is a good news for water consumers.

The Zamboanga City Water District (ZCWD) Board of Directors chaired by Engr. Efren Aranez has recently approved a scheme in charging consumers using less than minimum service charge with only the actual billing used.

This was announced by Aranez during a press conference yesterday that followed after a dialogue with the city’s top officials and stakes holders regarding the current state of affairs of the local water firm.

The ZCWD manager on the other hand disclosed that the discount scheme will be applied for the months of March and April 2015 only and will be reflected in the consumers’ bill for the month of May.

The scheme will be based on an actual number of cubic meters of water consumed for the billing cycle.

“This program is in line with our commitment to the ZCWD corporate social responsibility of delivering basic services to the people in exchange for commensurate payments,” Aranez said.

Discounts granted in the past were for prompt payment of bills and not anything like what is being offered now. — Dan Toribio
