P54-million water supply project for Jolo mainland

As a fitting ending to the traditional Muslim Ramadan Festival, the Provincial Government of Sulu in cooperation with the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Mindanao Economic Development Council ( MEDCO) and the Jolo Mainland Water District (JMWD) will start this October the construction of a P54 million project to upgrade the water supply system of the provincial capital of Jolo. The project, which is intended to end Jolo's age-old potable water supply problem, is part of the President Arroyo Administration's Humanitarian Offensive in the Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) specifically centered on the provinces of Sulu and Basilan.
