The implementation of the P65-million rehabilitation of Cortes town’s quake-damaged waterworks system will start next week, four years after the 7.2-magnitude earthquake hit Bohol.

This was bared by Cortes Mayor Iven Lim during the inauguration of the town’s new three-story police station on Wednesday.

According to Lim, he met with the initiative’s Pagadian-based contractor, which he did not identify, on Tuesday to formally set the project’s mobilization next week.

The project will be funded by the national government through the Bohol Earthquake Assistance 1 program, Lim said.

Cortes qualified for the fund’s usage as the waterworks system’s tanks and lines were heavily damaged by the tremor in 2013.

The mayor is optimistic that the rehabilitation project would address the town’s longstanding problem on water supply which has sparked complaints from residents.

Other than the waterworks system, the Cortes government is also overseeing the construction of its new municipal hall in Barangay Malayo. (Rey Tutas)
