Senatorial candidate Francis Tolentino expressed concern over the looming shortage of water services in the country.

The Cavite politiko said industrialization and the continued increase in population will cause shortage in water supply.

“Bagama’t ayon sa datos ng UNICEF ay 91% ng populasyon sa Pilipinas ang may pinagkukunan ng basic water services, nananatiling isang hamon ang kasapatan ng mga pinagkukunan na tubig sa bansa at ang kakayanan ng mga yamang tubig na ito na tustusan ang mabilis napag-akyat ng pangangailangan sa tubig nakaakibat ng industriyalisasyon at paglobo ng populasyon,” Tolentino said.

“Dagdag pa dito, malaking hamon din ang pagkawasak ng ating mga yamang tubig dahil sa polusyon at reclamation,” he added.

Tolentino also said that a water shortage will not only affect the development of the country but also the health of Filipinos.

“Naka­babahala ang banta na maaring maidulot ng kakulangan sa tubig sa pag-unlad at kalusugan ng mga Pilipino,” he said.
