The Boracay Island Water Company (BIWC) will now be a part in giving DOT accreditation to establishments in Boracay.
This is after DOT OIC Tim Ticar advised the Task Force for Mandatory Sewer Connection to include the certification from the water company when furnishing an accreditation.
The said certification will serve as a proof that a certain establishment is connected to the sewerage treatment facility of BIWC.
In line with this, BIWC Chief Operating Officer Ben Mañosca, assured that within 3 months, the establishment will already have the connection.
According to Ticar, most of the establishments that they have inspected are connected; those that are not were advised to do so, except from those that has their own treatment plant.
It was learned that during the Task Force’s meeting, Mañosca clarified, that no one should be exempted from the said mandate, may it be private, public, commercial or residential.
