For the longest time, water supply had been one of the greatest problems of the residents of Barangay Tortugas. The lack of household water system and community artesian wells drying up make their lives miserable. Many had to depend on water peddlers which equated to additional  house expense or suffer the long queues themselves just to get  some potable water. The wait is finally over.

On July the 2nd, the new Barangay Water system was unveiled to all, with the help of distinct members of local City government, Councillor Vianca Venzon Gozon, Councillor  Liza A. Vasquez and Congressman Abet Garcia represented by Ms. Joan Soyangco.

Tortugas United Methodist Church pastor, Rev. Billy Torres also graced the occasion and blessed the new water system.

This milestone would not have been achieved without the tireless efforts of all Barangay Tortugas council members, led by  Barangay Captain Victor A. Baluyot Jr. This would also not have been possible without the endless support of city Mayor Joet Garcia and Vice Mayor Noel Valdecanas, Gov. Tet Garcia and Cong. Abet Garcia whose good governance benefited not just Barangay Tortugas but also the metropolitan Bataan.

This project was part of the prize when Tortugas was named “Pinakatatanging Barangay sa Lungsod ng Balanga”.  The Barangay council is hopeful that the residents , in welcoming  this precious gift of water, would make all the efforts to enjoy it through responsible use.  Let’s build a clean and healthy lifestyle and mold a strong Barangay Tortugas.

We would like to give our sincere thanks to all of you, most especially to our Lord Jesus Christ.. May God Bless us all.
