Maynilad’s water services will be cut off from April 16 (Tuesday) to April 20 (Saturday).
Barangays in Valenzuela, Malabon, Navotas, Quezon City, Manila, Parañaque, Pasay, Las Piñas and Bacoor City in Cavite will be affected.
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)

The Manila Water Co. announced on Thursday that 20 villages in Quezon City will experience temporary water service interruptions as it undertakes emergency leak repairs.
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.
The water distributor said the repair works is expected to be completed on May 24 (Friday) at 6 a.m.
Affected villages are listed below:
Old Capitol Site
Teachers Village East
Teachers Village West
The Manila Water said the water service interruption will affect 242,000 people in 44,056 households, commercial and business establishments.
“The interconnection of the new 900mm relocated pipeline at Elliptical Road corner North Avenue, which was previously planned for May 24 to 25, will also be undertaken at the same time to minimize impact to the affected customers,” it added.
The Manila Water advised affected residents to store enough water as some of these areas may still experience service interruptions even after the restoration “due to the still-limited raw water supply.”
