CALOOCAN City Mayor Enrico “Recom” Echiverri has ordered the thorough inspection of all local water refilling stations as a means of ensuring the cleanliness of its products.
Echiverri issued the directive following the release of a study by the Department of Health (DOH) saying that some “purified” water being sold in Metro Manila were tainted and are potentially harmful to a person’s health.
Among those to be checked by the soon-to-be formed inspection team are the overall cleanliness of the water refilling stations, the presence of proper facilities and apparatus in purifying water and the cleanliness of water bottles and containers.
Businessmen who will be caught with violations will be given a warning so they may put everything in order with their water refilling stations. On the second offense, they will be meted with the appropriate punishment under the law.
Echiverri told residents to purchase purified water only from licensed establishments as a way to guarantee that the water is safe to drink.
Echiverri, for his part, appealed to owners of water refilling stations to ensure the cleanliness of their water products, noting that the health of consumers is at stake.
