In an update posted last July 12 by Kyogojo Engineering Service Cooperative, affected areas were still experiencing low pressure to no water due to an alleged unauthorized “closing of valves” around Lumbia.

Just a few hours ago, Kyogojo posted the latest update wherein it stated that they still cannot reopen the control valves because it was “padlocked”. Meantime, Kyogojo provided water to the affected residents through a water tank by Liberty Land which developed the said subdivisions.

Affected residents are calling for local barangay and city officials to intervene immediately to address their plight. Keep posted.
