(The Philippine Star) - February 2, 2014 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Manila Water and the Philippine Dragon Boat Federation have committed to harness their partnership to further advocate the revival of several polluted rivers in Metro Manila to its former pristine condition through the Toka-Toka program.

The Toka Toka program is the first and only environmental movement that focuses on cleaning up the heavily-polluted rivers and waterways in the metropolis by educating the general public on used water management.  

The Toka Toka program focuses on one simple act that each individual can claim as his own share towards the ultimate goal of ensuring cleaner and safer rivers in Metro Manila, notably the three river systems of Marikina, Pasig and San Juan.

The four simple acts or toka that each individual can contribute as his own include the proper disposal of garbage, desludging of septic tanks, connecting to Manila Water’s sewer network and supporting the company’s community-based sanitation and used water projects.

“Manila Water is very open and not very typical in selecting our partners since we do not limit our partnerships to public and private organizations, but also to non-profit organizations like the Philippine Dragon Boat Federation,” Manila Water East Zone business operations group director Ferdinand Dela Cruz said.

For his part, the Philippine Dragon Boat Federation vows to support Manila Water’s Toka Toka program by engaging its 800 volunteer members on several clean-up drives to be spearheaded by Manila Water in different locations.

Manila Water is the East Zone concessionaire of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System that provides water and used water services to more than 6.2 million residents of parts of Quezon City and Manila, Marikina, Pasig, San Juan, Mandaluyong, Pateros, Makati, Taguig and several towns in Rizal Province.
