Bacolod should have enough supply of water to keep up with the real estate boom in the city and attract more investments, the Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry said as it seeks an update from the Bacolod City Water District on the status of the bulk water project.
MBCCI Chief Executive Officer Frank Carbon said yesterday that with the expected increase in demand of water supply because of the real-estate boom, Baciwa should be transparent in its initiatives to upgrade and expand water supply to reach more households and commercial establishments.Carbon said they laud the bulk water project since Bacolod has no major water source and this will help meet the high water demand.
