OLONGAPO CITY —The local government has started rationing free water to residents of a village in this city who have been affected by the low water supply.

The Olongapo City Information Center said Mayor Rolen Paulino Jr. facilitated the water ration in Barangay New Cabalan on Wednesday, April 17, with the help of the local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (DRRMO).


Paulino said the free water ration would be available every other day.


Some parts of the city are experiencing low water supply due to the extreme heat being experienced in the country.

Subic Water, the local water concessionaire, said the intense heat was affecting the sources of water supply in the city.

It also urged residents to stock up on water in anticipation of power outages due to the unstable power situation in Luzon. INQ
