Yearly, San Juan City celebrates the Wattah Wattah Festival. On Monday, the celebration pushed through amid the water shortage.
KAMI learned that adjustments have been made due to the water shortage.
In a report by the GMA News Online (author Joviland Rita), around 50 firetrucks are usually used in the festival. However, this time, only 16 firetrucks were deployed to mark the 16th year of the festival.
The remaining 34 firetrucks will be used to distribute water in some areas affected by the water interruption.
The Wattah Wattah Festival celebrates the Feast of St. John the Baptist. The residents, passersby, visitors, and commuters are being splashed with water to symbolize baptism.
It has been reported that about 20 barangays in San Juan have been experiencing water interruption. The water level of Angat Dam continues to drop to critical level, and it is the one that supplies water in almost the entire Metro Manila.
