Water Watch Advocates commends Atty. Lorendo Dilag, Chairman of the BACIWA Board of Directors for exposing that Bacolod City Water District (BACIWA) is paying a huge loan for Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA) amounting to P537 Million without water gushing from the pipes (Negros Daily Bulletin, June 2, 2017 issue). Furthermore, Atty. Lorendo Dilag said that the BACIWA Board discovered that from the P537 Million loan in 2002, there were 7.5 kilometers of pipes buried at the back of San Miguel Corporation with no water gushing from it because it was "overdesigned" and do not address the water crisis of BACIWA. Dilag also said that the big pipes buried were very big, but there is no water.
