September 26, 2018
ANGELES CITY -- The Balibago Waterworks System Incorporated (BWSI) has joined the nationwide cleanliness drive initiated by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).
Criselle Panlilio Alejandro, senior vice president of BWSI, said the firm's 50 operating franchises recently conducted a simultaneous clean up drive in selected areas.
The BWSI Group of Companies implemented its environment project last Monday in support of the DENR Environmental Management Bureau's national clean-up day held last September 17, according to Alejandro.
"So all of those (BWSI) franchises which are located in Pampanga, Tarlac, Bulacan, Pangasinan, Nueva Ecija, Nueva Viscaya, Aurora, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Benguet, Iloilo, Bohol, Batangas, Laguna are cooperating and partipating," Alejandro said.
In this city, BWSI employees selected Don Juico Avenue in Barangay Malabanias and Sitio Pader in Barangay Balibago as their target areas for their cleanliness program.
"I really wanted Balibago Waterworks System Incorporated to fully participate with our national government and our countrymen in promoting environmental values for our employees," Alejandro said.
She added that BWSI also wants to show communities where it has franchises that the water firm's executives and employees support the government's advocacy by cleaning the environment.
As a water utility, concern for the environment is "very closely" related to the BWSI business, according to Alejandro.
"We get our product water"
