The National Research Council of the Philippines (NRCP) organized a tour of Manila Water's Lakbayan Center at Balara, Quezon City last Jan. 28, 2011. It was an educational tour wherein lectures and video presentations about Manila Water, Path of Pat Tubig (The Mascot of Manila Water), Waste Water Treatment and Manila Water's Ondoy Activities were presented. Indeed, the lectures were enlightening. After the lectures - you will crave for Manila Water's tap water which you will realize is clean and refreshing.
The highlight of the tour is the pledging of the participants to protect the environment by signing a tumbler with some tips on environmental protection such as:
- Re-use this drinking bottle
- Practice proper waste disposal
- Plant a tree
- Support water recovery efforts so that clean water can go back to our rivers
After signing your name on your tumbler, you post a sticker leaf with your name on the wall of the Lakbayan center. After this we had a site visit of the UP STP and La Mesa Dam.
