Dear Mayor Teodoro:
Manila Water Company, Inc., as a concessionaire of Metropolitan Waterworks and
Sewerage System (MWSS), is bound to deliver water services and build facilities
that will treat used water as part of our agreement and as our environmental
advocacy as well.
With this, we are about to inaugurate our biggest operational sewage treatment
plant (STP), the Marikina North STP, located in Brgy. Nangka, on November 24, 2016
at 3:00 PM. A formal invitation will be sent for further details about the event.
Likewise, as the father of our Host City and our partner, we would like to request
you to be a part of the projects audio-visual presentation (AVP) by sharing your
views and expectations on how the facility will help the City. If permitted, we would
like to conduct the interview on November 9, 2016, 9:00 AM. Attached is the list of
questions that will be raised during the interview for advance information.
In addition to this, may we also request for an audience with you on November 9
(after the interview) to present our Emergency Reservoir Project within your City.
We would like to give updates on what we have done so far and our next steps for
the project.
Should you have any concerns or inquiries, please feel free to revert to our
Senior Territory Manager, Ms. Cres Ann Abundo. She can be reached at 0917 _______

Very truly yours,
