The complete list may be viewed in Maynilad’s Facebook account.

Maynilad said the release of new schedule of water disruption is to ensure that the limited supply of water is equitably and efficiently distributed to its customers given the reduced raw water releases from Angat Dam.

The west zone concessionaire also advised its customers to store enough water when supply is available.

Upon resumption of water service, Maynilad said the water should be allowed to flow out for a few seconds until it clears.

“We appeal to our customers for their continued patience and understanding, as we try to manage the effects of the reduced allocation on our operations,” it said.

For customers who have inquiries, Maynilad may be contacted at its hotlines 1626 (Metro Manila) and 1800-100092837 (Cavite).

Maynilad reduces hours of water interruption in affected areas

Marje Pelayo   •   November 11, 2019

MANILA, Philippines – Maynilad customers can relax a bit as the water concessionaire announced shorter hours of water service interruptions.

Maynilad said recent days of rainshowers helped in replenishing water supply in Ipo Dam.

“Twenty percent of our customers have interruptions of about 8 to 10 hours. But that is starting to reduce because of the rains that came in but we don’t know for how long again,” explained Maynilad President and CEO Ramoncito Fernandez.

Around nine million households in the West Zone of Metro Manila depend on Maynilad for water supply especially if water supply becomes thin during the dry season when Angat Dam fails to replenish as predicted by the state weather service PAGASA.

According to Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS), they just limited the allocation so as not to deplete the supply in Angat Dam.

“Wala naman tayong (There is no) water crisis. We are just making sure that water crisis last March will not happen anymore,” said MWSS Administrator Emmanuel Salamat.

Meanwhile, the MWSS is pushing measures to protect Laguna Lake from pollution.

“We have just proposed protection and preservation of our Laguna Lake and declare it as a vital source of our domestic freshwater supply,” Salamat said.

So far, Maynilad has treatment plants that generate water from Laguna Lake and supplies to 310 million liters of water daily to its customers.

According to Fernandez, Laguna Lake can produce the volume of domestic water being supplied by the Angat Dam.

Laguna Lake is over 90,000 hectares in area which is larger than Singapore.

“To my mind, Laguna Lake is the biggest body of water that can supply Metro Manila and even the surrounding provinces like Cavite, Laguna, and Rizal,” he explained.

According to Maynilad, though Laguna Lake is used for fishery, it should primarily serve as a source of water for domestic use. – MNP (with details from Rey Pelayo)

Angat Dam may not be replenished until end of the year – PAGASA

Marje Pelayo   •   November 6, 2019

MANILA, Philippines – State weather service PAGASA believes that the water level in Angat Dam is still far from reaching the maximum water level of 212 meters even before the year ends.

PAGASA said the amount of rainfall in the country is still not enough to replenish what was lost during the onset of El Niño that started last year up to the first quarter of 2019.

Weather specialist Benison Estareja said observing the current state of the weather, Angat Dam’s water level may only reach up to a maximum of 190 meters.

“Ngayon ay nasa normal pa naman ang water level natin pero ang sinasabi natin na normal high water level na 210 meters ay malabo,” Estareja said.

(So far, our water level remains normal but not the normal high level of 210 meters.)

According to the National Water Resources Board (NWRB), water supply interruptions will continue for Metro Manila clients in order to reserve water supply for the dry season.

“Sa ganito pong lebel sa 190 meters ay kaya naman nating ma-manage yan. Kaya lang magpapatuloy yung kabawasan alokasyon para ito ay mapaabot sa summer next year,” Sevillo David, the NWRB Executive Director said.

(We can still manage with 190 meters water level. However, we need to continue with limited allocation so our supply would last until summer next year.)

Water concessionaires Maynilad and Manila Water are both imposing water service interruptions to its customers.

The two companies advised clients to store water enough for use until normal schedule resumes.

“Kapag mataas ang lebel ng Ipo dam, iniigsian natin (ang water interruption),” said Grace Laxa, Maynilad’s Media Relations Asst. Manager

(When Ipo Dam’s water level is high, we cut short the hours of water interruption.)

“Imbes na halimbawa may area tayo ng 10 hours pupwedeng 8 hours nalang ang kanilang interruption (For instance, an area that experiences 10 hours interruption will only have 8 hours),” he added.

President Rodrigo Duterte previously stated that he will use his extraordinary power to solve problems in water supply in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

For now, according to the NWRB, the best and the easiest way to replenish water supply is through deep well. MNP (with details from Rey Pelayo)

Water-intensive facilities get enterprising amid water service interruptions

Maris Federez   •   October 24, 2019

MANILA, Philippines – The rotational water service interruptions scheduled by water concessionaires, Maynilad and Manila Water, had started in several areas in Metro Manila, Cavite and Bulacan at dawn on Thursday (October 24).

Maynilad and Manila Water adopted the said measure following the continuing decrease of the water level in Angat Dam.

Alongside the residents stocking water for their daily use, owners of water-intensive facilities, such as laundromats and car wash centers, get enterprising to go on business as usual.

Laundry shop crewmembers say water service interruptions create big impact on their business as they need to adjust their operating hours in cases when their stored water in their water tanks would not suffice.

“Halimbawa nung nakaraan ang tubig bumalik siya ng alas tres na ng hapon, so off kami sa umaga tapos mag-oopen kami alas tres na or dos na ang opening namin” Nida Dagtan, a laundryshop staff said.

She also said water service interruptions affect their salaries as daily income wagers, particularly when they have to close their shop earlier than the usual time.

A carwash shop owner, meanwhile, said they have to store water in every way and containers they can so as not to have shortage during business hours, to the extent of securing rainwater catchments.

“Nagsasahod kami sa ulan para dun sa mga lower parts ng sasakyan dun namin ginagamit para makatipid kami ng tubig,” said Regie Echano, a carwash shop owner.

He added that on average, they can service 40 vehicles a day that’s why it is imperative that they have enough stored water.

Water refilling stations, on the other hand, would store water in two large tanks to ensure that they can service their clients even with the shortage.

“Pinupuno na po namin yung tangke para kapag walang tubig, may handa kami. May pambigay sa customer,” said Welmer Estanel, a water refilling station crew.

The National Water Resources Board (NWRB), however, advised the public to store water just enough to get by during the hours when the water supply is stalled.

This is so that Maynilad and Manila Water will not run low of water supply very quickly that would result in longer hours of water service interruption.

Based on Maynilad advisory, the areas they cover will experience around 8 to 18 hours of no water services; while Manila Water’s scheduled water interruption in the areas they cover will happen for four to eight hours.  (from the report of Joan Nano) /mbmf
