MANILA, Philippines – Several areas in Metro Manila and Cavite will experience water service interruptions on June 11 to June 12, according to water concessionaire Maynilad on Sunday (June 9).
Areas to be affected include:
According to Maynilad spokesperson Grace Laxa, the water interruption will be due to maintenance work which include the installation of a rapid mixer to the agency’s water treatment plant in La Mesa Dam in Quezon City.
The rapid mixer is a vital part of their treatment plant, Laxa said.
Maynilad customers are advised to start collecting water for their consumption during the days of water interruption.
Maynilad has announced that there will be rotational water interruptions from 4 to 8 hours due to the low water level in Angat and Ipo dam.
From 101 meters — which is the maintaining level of Ipo Dam— it dropped to 100.20 meters as of Wednesday (February 5) at 6:00 a.m.
Maynilad Spokesperson Grace Laxamana said it would take time for the water supply to be delivered to customers’ houses due to the low water level in the said dams.
“So kapag mabagal iyong treatment process siyempre mas mabagal rin ang pagpuno ng mga reservoirs natin bago natin mai-deliver sa mga customer natin, (So if the treatment process is slow, it will take time to fill the reservoirs before it can be delivered to our customers),” she said.
Around 80 percent of Maynilad’s customers will experience the rotational water interruption.
Maynilad advises its customers to take note of the rotational service interruption in their area and make sure to conserve water.
“Sinisiguro natin na magkakaroon naman sila araw-araw ng tubig kaya po huwag silang mag-hoard at ipunin lamang iyong kinakailangan nila for the whole day (We are ensuring [customers] will have enough water supply everyday so they should not hoard and just reserve enough water for the whole day),” Laxamana said.—AAC (with reports from Joan Nano)
