Manila Water gears up for summer
The Manila Water Company has begun implementing measures to maximize production of its treatment plants and water sources as it prepares for the expected increase in demand during the summer months.
These measures support call from the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System to ensure water supply during the dry months.
“These measures are part of Manila Water’s commitment to ensure that our customers continue to receive 24/7 water services, especially during the summer season where demand normally spikes by 15 percent due to higher temperatures,” said Manila Water chief operating officer for East Zone Arnold Mortera in a statement on Wednesday.
“We continue to work closely with the MWSS, National Water Resources Board, Department of Public Works and Highways, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Metro Manila Development Authority and other government agencies and local government units to always find ways to provide our customers with 24/7 uninterrupted water supply,” he added.
Manila Water started carrying out initiatives to meet demand while ensuring adequate water supply reserves for its 7.4 million customers in eastern Metro Manila and Rizal province.
