The duration of service interruption will last for five to 30 hours, depending on the area.

Maynilad said this is due to the water network enhancement activities that will be done during these dates in line with continuous efforts to improve water services in the western zone. These include facility maintenance works, pipe decommissioning and interconnections, and valve replacements.

The water company also assured that 40 water tankers will be deployed to deliver water to affected areas when necessary.

Aside from the impending water interruption, many consumers are also grappling with rotational brownouts due to low power reserves in Luzon grid amid the extreme weather condition.

However, Malacañang ensures that the government is on top of the situation.

“I was just talking to (Energy) Sec. Al(fonso Cusi), sabi niya we are on top of it, yun ang sabi niya sa akin kanina,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo told reporters at a press briefing Monday.

(I was just talking to Sec. Al, he said we are on top of it, that’s what he told me earlier.)

On Monday, Luzon grid was placed again on red and yellow alerts, the latest in the consecutive alert issuances of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines since last week due to unplanned outages and derated capacity of several power plants.

The Department of Energy also expressed hope that the power supply in Luzon grid will stabilize in the coming days as some currently offline power plants will resume operations this week. – Robie de Guzman (with details from Rosalie Coz)

In an advisory posted on its Facebook page, Manila Water said the joint leak repair and pipe interconnection/relocation at the Elliptical Road in Quezon City was due to an accidental breakage on a major pipeline caused by one of the Department of Public Works and Highways’ (DPWH) contractors.

“Due to an accidental breakage caused by a DPWH contractor, damaging our major pipeline at Elliptical Road corner Commonwealth Avenue (northbound) in Quezon City, Manila Water is currently undertaking emergency leak repairs which will result in temporary water service interruption,” the advisory read.
