created Cebu City Ordinance No. 1997

Under the Mayoralty Term of Mayor Tomas R. Osmea

Whereas, Cebu City has prided itself as a boom city, however the lack of water has loomed as a creeping crisis;
Whereas, in an integrated national and local development plan,

the importance of a viable water resource is essential for continuous economic growth, more so with a growing population;

Whereas, the persistent abuse and degradation of the watersheds, over-pumping from groundwater sources, organic and metal pollution in the rivers show a crisis already in progress; Whereas, the condition of the Guadalupe River and other rivers in the City of Cebu reflect the true picture of the economic and social health and, if not counteracted, will result in severe ecological and devastating consequences;

Whereas, an effective water resource and river rehabilitation as part of a political agenda is a key element to poverty eradication, health improvement, nutrition, protection of indispensable ecology, economic and social development; Whereas, there is an imperative need to amend City ordinance No 1764 in order to ensure that the technical studies for the rehabilitation of rivers in the City of Cebu as proposed by CUSW and other nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) can be properly implemented in stages;

Whereas, the principles of the Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) which is defined as a process of coordinated development and management of water, land and related resources within hydrological boundaries in order to optimize economic and social welfare, without compromising the sustainability of vital ecosystems shall likewise be adopted as a policy.
