No water until July 23.
Waterless spell to last as long as 14 hours.
After the rotating brownouts, come rotating waterless days.
Maynilad, the water concessionaire for the so-called West Zone, announced on Saturday that vast areas of Metro Manila and Cavite are now experiencing no water supply for 12 to 14 hours a day until July 23 due to the 30 percent decline in its raw water allocation.

I just started checking into it a little deeper and.........
Well......... Have a go at these links:
October 2009 - Philippine Headline News Online Rotating Blackouts Hit Eastern Metro. (Manila)
This next link is from one of the blatantly obvious ICLEI-tilted companies called 'Global Biomass' - They're appearing to be all-in on sustainable development, etc.
March 1, 2010 - ABS-CBN News Rotating blackouts hit Luzon.
February 10 2010 - NIA starts water rationing to CamSur farms.

Something's not computing in my head about all this.
Can't even give it a smell test yet because of the overpowering odor.
I have a gut sense we're in seriously major territory here and I haven't seen media outside of the area reporting about it.

I carry a firearm because a police officer is too heavy.
