Water Missions International has donated one unit of Living Water Treatment System to CPU.
Water Mission International has donated one unit of Living Water Treatment System (Reverse Osmosis) to Central Philippine University. The donation was facilitated through its Philippines Country Resident Agent, Prof. Ricardo Patricio, a CPU alumnus (Agricultural Engineering ‘75) and its Asia-Pacific Director Pastor Jan Daniel.
The Reverse Osmosis unit costs P8 million and is more sophisticated than the ordinary LWTS. It comes with a generator set to power up the system. It can supply the need of the entire CPU population with clean and safe water.
Water Mission International is a non-profit, Christian engineering organization based in North Charleston, South Carolina, USA that designs, builds and implements safe water, sanitation and hygiene solutions for people in developing countries and disaster areas.
CPU commits itself to install, operate, and maintain the LWTS to supply clean and safe water to its constituents on campus every day as well as to the neighboring communities during disasters.
The unit was transferred to the CPU campus from Goducate Training Center, San Miguel, Iloilo on August 23, 2019 through the efforts of Mr. Joel Somosierra. The Living Water Treatment System will be operational within the year.
