Water concessionaires, Maynilad and Manila Water, will implement rotational water interruptions beginning on Thursday (October 24) due to the low water level at Angat Dam.
As of 6:00 a.m. on Wednesday (October 23), the water level at Angat Dam dropped from 186.46 on Tuesday (October 22) meters to 186.22 m.
The water concessionaires already announced the areas which will be affected by the rotational water interruption on their official Facebook page.
According to Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System Chairman Reynaldo Velasco, they want to avoid the water crisis that happened in the previous months.
“Baka wala tayong tubig sa summer kapag hindi nagdagdagan iyong Angat Dam, so parang iyong measure is to lengthen the capacity of Angat to be able to supply until summer ulit and then hoping next year wala nang El Niño (We might not have water supply in the summer if the water level in Angat Dam does not improve. So the measure is to lengthen the capacity of Angat to be able to supply water until the summer. Hopefully, next year there will be no more El Niño),” he said.—AAC (with reports from Joan Nano)
MANILA, Philippines — Manila Water Services is imposing tariff reduction on its clients’ January water bill.
Based on the company’s computation, a 14-centavo cubic meter tariff reduction is possible following the foreign currency differential adjustment (FCDA) which at present has reached 19-centavos per cubic meter.
This means residential customers with average consumption of 30 cubic meters per month will have P3.06 savings in their January bill.
Likewise, those who consume an average of 20 cubic meters per month will have P1.70 savings and P0.76 savings for those consuming an average of 10 cubic meters per month.
Meanwhile, lifeline customers or low-income residential consumers who consume 10 cubic meters or less per month are exempted from the FCDA.
This means that their lifeline rate will remain at P87 per month.
Maynilad is warning its customers against unauthorized agents going door-to-door to collect payments.
The water concessionaire received reports from customers about individuals visiting their homes, posing as Maynilad employees, and asking for payment. Reports also said these alleged employees would threaten customers of having their water supply cut if they do not pay.

Maynilad reminds its customers that no individuals, not even Maynilad employees and its service providers, are not authorized to collect payments. Only authorized channels provided on the water concessionaire’s website are allowed to collect payments. AAC
