More than 200,000 Maynilad customers will be of no water supply for 10 days, beginning on September 27.

This will be due to the temporary suspension of operation of the Putatan Water Treatment Facility in Muntinlupa.

Maynilad Water Services Incorporated on Tuesday (September 24) said service improvement works are needed to be done in the plant to increase the amount of water the company supplies to its customers.

Maynilad Operations Head Ronald Padua said from the current 100-million liters per day (MLD) of water it produces from the Laguna Lake, the water concessionaire plans to upgrade it to 150-MLD.

The company believes the service improvement work which will take place from September 27 to October 7 will be a big help in preparing for any water supply crisis that might happen in the future.

“Para mangyari yun, kailangan namin i-shutdown po temporarily yung Putatan Plant 2 sa loob ng 10 araw. At inaasahan namin after that ay kaya na po naming i-operate ito at full capacity of 150 MLD,” explained Padua.

With this activity, customers from the cities of Paranaque, Las Pinas, and Muntinlupa, and several towns of Cavite.

“Lumalabas sa loob ng 10 araw dahil average 9 hours yung supply availability meaning po merong 15 hours na interrupted or wala silang tubig everyday,” Padua added.

Customers in these areas are advised to store water that will be enough to sustain them during the hours when the service interruption is in effect or there is no water supply.

Maynilad will post on its Facebook and Twitter accounts the affected barangays and the schedule of the water supply interruption.

Maynilad also made an assurance that its customers will not be charged for the service improvement expenses to be incurred in this project. (from the report of Joan Nano) /mbmf

MANILA, Philippines — Maynilad customers in Las Piñas and Cavite will face water supply interruptions from November 1 to 21 due to the facility upgrade of its pumping stations.

Publiko hinikayat na magpalinis ng septic tank upang makaiwas sa sakit

Marje Pelayo   •   July 17, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – Hinihikayat ng Maynilad Water Services ang mga customer nito na magpalinis ng kani-kanilang septic tank sa bahay upang makaiwas sa sakit na dulot ng naipong dumi dito. 

Ayon sa kumpanya, nakapakahalaga na mapanatiling malinis ang kapaligiran lalo na sa gitna ng pandemya sa coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Binigyang diin ng Maynilad ang kahalagahan ng paglilinis ng septic tank isang beses kada limang taon.

“Ito po ay para mapanatili nating malinis ang ating kapaligiran at ang katubigan at maiwasan ang mga sakit tulad ng cholera, diarrhea, leptospirosis saka hepatitis,” pahayag ni John Aldrin Pangan, ang pangulo ng Septage Management Department ng Maynilad.

“Isa po ay para maiwasan rin natin na mag-overflow mga septic tank natin kasi nga puno na po ng sludge,” dagdag nito.

Mula nang pumasok ang buwan ng Hulyo, ibinalik na ng Maynilad ang desludging service nito kasabay ng pagluluwag ng quarantine restrictions sa Metro Manila at sa iba pang lugar.

Subalit maraming customers ang takot na magpaserbisyo sa pangambang magpapasok ng ibang tao sa kanilang bahay na maaring magdala ng virus.

Ngunit tiniyak naman ng Maynilad na nagpapatupad sila ng mahigipit na health and safety protocols sa kanilang mga empleyado na maglilinis ng septic tank. 

Kumpleto ang mga ito ng safety gear gaya ng facemask, face shield at gloves.

Regular din ang disinfection ng kanilang mga sapatos bago pumasok at lumabas ng bahay ng customer. 

Gayundin ay regular na nililinis ang hose at tanke na kanilang ginagamit upang makatiyak na walang nakakapit na virus. 

“Noon nag-resume po kami ng July, expected na po namin na mababa kaya po as much as possible gusto po namin maibalik,” ani Pangan. 

“Kaya po namin ginawa ang new normal protocols. Tinitiyak po namin na safe po magpalinis ng inyong septic tank,” dagdag nito.

Ayon sa Maynilad, walang babayaran ang mga customer na mapapalinis ng septic tank basta’t pasok ito sa schedule na isang beses sa loob ng limang taon.

Samantala, ang Manila Water naman ay hindi pa rin naibabalik ang kanilang disludging services sa mga customer mula nang ipairal ang enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

Ito’y dahil hinhintay pa ng Manila Water ang clerance mula sa ilang lokal na pamahalaan.

Ang mga makokolektang waste material gaya ng solid waste ay dadalhin sa mga planta upang gawing fertilizer habang dadaan naman sa treatment ang tubig upang malinis at muling mapakinabangan. MNP (sa ulat ni Joan Nano)
