INDAHAG, Cagayan de Oro City – JE Hydro and Bio Energy Corporation (JEHBEC) opened its potable drinking water to the residents of Barangay Indahag, this city.

The said opening signals the commitment of the company to give service to the residents in terms of water distribution since the poplation of this barangay has no source of potable water.

“As a sign of gratitude to everyone who made this project a success, JE Hydro and Bio Energy Corporation (JEHBEC) will sponsor a 5-day Libreng Tubig Festival to anyone who wants to avail of it from today until Sunday,” Baldelovar pointed out.

“We wish to thank JE Hydro for helping us bring potable water to Barangay Indahag and our nearby communities,” said City Mayor Rolando “Klarex” Uy in the vernacular in his message during the event. “We appreciate how you have invested your own resources in this project, and hope you can still help bring water to our other waterless barangays which cannot be serviced by our Cagayan de Oro City Water District (COWD).”

Mayor Klarex also acknowledged the support given by the past city council for unanimously approving the project, as well as the current city council headed by Vice Mayor Jocelyn “Bebot” B. Rodriguez who likewise pledged their support for similar private-public partnerships which can provide safe drinking water to the city’s waterless barangays.

Last year, the Cagayan de Oro City Council unanimously approved earlier without objection during its regular session Monday, March 1, 2021, Resolution No. 2021-47 endorsing and/or imposing no objection to the application of the JE Hydro & Bio-Energy Corporation to develop, build and maintain a Level-3 Water Supply and Distribution System in Barangay Indahag, this city with the intent to supply and distribute a safe drinking water to households and establishments in said barangay.
