Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) Chief Regulator Patrick Ty is barely on his first year of a 5-year fixed term. But the way he has handled the water crisis which struck millions of consumers in the East Zone, this will be a very long wait for his term to end in 2022.

Ibon Foundation Executive Director Sonny Africa and Bayan Secretary-General Renato Reyes Jr. ridiculed Ty for muddling the issue to escape accountability.

“I don’ want to point fingers. This is the responsibility of everyone including the government, concessionaires, the public, the leftist groups, etc.,” said Ty in an interview with ANC.

Africa said: “Hahaha, the MWSS chief regulator accepting accountability without being accountable — if it’s everyone’s fault, then it’s no one’s fault.”

Reyes said: “Wow. Blame everyone and hold no one accountable. Very convenient.”

“MWSS Chief Regulator Patrick Ty should stop with his BS of blaming everyone including consumers for the water crisis. Lahat sinisi pero wala ni isa ang accountable. Kalokohan. Your job is to determine if Manila Water violated its contract during the massive service interruption,” he added.

Ty went on Facebook to blame the growing population and lack new water sources for the water crisis. He got burned when a former MWSS engineer that the simple solution was to open the bypass facility from Angat Dam to the La Mesa reservoir.

He tried to be cute and wrote: “Thanks for enlightening us. I didn’t even knew (sic) I ordered its closure. Must be my evil twin brother.’

Is Ty fit for the job? Judge for yourself.

According to the MWSS website, Ty’s longest work experience was as Deputy Administrator of the Bataan Freeport from 2010 to 2017. Before that, he served as Special Legal Assistant of the Department of Finance from 2006 to 2010.

Ty, a BA Psychology major Ateneo and graduated from University of the Philippines College of Law in 2003, also had stints in the Central Bank Board of Liquidators, UP Institute of Government and Law Reform, and Ocampo and Manalo Law Firm.
