One such story revolves around Marie Joy Manojil Ligudon, a 12-year old girl from Ifugao who has become the youngest among a steadily growing number of kidney patients undergoing hemodialysis treatment at the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center.

The council argued the NWRB erred in granting the said application of John Hay Water System, Inc. for the renewal of its water rights application to maintain and operate a waterworks system inside the former American base because it failed to include in its deliberations the position of the local government to be an automatic intervener in water rights applications being filed by different companies wanting to operate in the different parts of the city.
