Boracay Water Recognised On First Ever Boracay Day


Water and wastewater operator, Boracay Water, was recently recognised by the Municipality of Malay during Boracay’s Inaugural Day, for the company’s valuable contribution in promoting the Island’s sustainability, in particular for being the water and wastewater champion in Malay’s Boracay Beach Management Program (BBMP). The water company is one of the four private companies that were recognised during the celebration. The other companies were the San Miguel Corporation, the Boracay Foundation, Inc., and the Petron Foundation, Inc.

The BBMP was launched by the Local Government Unit of Malay in 2010 to bring together Environment Champions who will work together on planning and implementing projects to preserve the beauty of Boracay Island. Boracay Water was also one of the staunch supporters in the series of events leading to the first ever Boracay Day, as a hydration sponsor of the Boracay Flores De Mayo and an active supporter of the Pot Session Program; a seedling-production activity in support of the rehabilitation of the Nabaoy Watershed.

Boracay Water, one of the three subsidiaries of East Zone water concessionaire Manila Water, was formed in 2009 by a joint venture agreement with the Tourism Infrastructure Authority and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA – formerly known as Philippine Tourism Authority) to operate the water and wastewater services on the Island of Boracay, particularly in its three barangays – Manoc-Manoc, Balabag, and Yapak.
