Likewise, water permittees for municipal use not required by law to secure a CPC shall also maintain their WPs in good standing, otherwise the same may be cancelled or revoked.


In order to actively support the efforts of the government to effectively manage/control the spread of the COVID-19 disease, a sustained and efficient supply of safe water to hospitals or institutions (government or private) must be a primary concern of all water utilities/service providers. And, in consonance with Memorandum Order No. 1, series of 2020, dated 20 March 2020, issued by the undersigned Executive Director, all water utility operators/water service providers are, further hereby, enjoined to:

1. Maintain and ensure sustained and efficient supply of safe water to all hospitals, or institutions, whether government-run or privately owned or managed, including makeshift structures/tents, especially those that are used for the treatment, or as quarantine/ holding area, for COVID-19 patients and/or health personnel, or workers.

2. Facilitate and immediately act on request for connection of water supply to all structures or facilities, whether permanent or otherwise, used in the fight against the COVID-19, giving due consideration to the essential need of safe water in the operation of such facilities.

3. Extend all available means possible to provide water, in support of the operation of hospitals and similar medical or quarantine facilities.

For strict compliance.
