Manila Water featured in annual water env’t convention
Manila Water Company, Inc. (Manila Water), along with other companies, was featured in this year’s National Annual Convention of the Water and Environment Association of the Philippines (WEAP) held in Manila.
This year’s convention featured Manila Water’s services and solutions in response to the various needs of its customers and stakeholders from the East Zone of Metro Manila to other geographies in the Philippines such as Boracay, Bulacan, Cebu, Clark in Pampanga, Davao del Norte, Laguna, Pangasinan, and Zamboanga.
The WEAP Convention was a two-day event that brought together policy makers, businesses, and leaders in the water industry, and other stakeholders aimed to inspire sustainable programs that may address various environmental issues/concerns.
The event featured the keynote speech of Senator Loren Legarda who called on different concerned sectors to heighten the public’s understanding on issues and threats posed to the country’s water security and to collaborate in addressing this pressing environmental threat.
“For the past 20 years since it began its operations of the eastern service area of Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS), Manila Water has been instrumental in uplifting the lives of many Filipinos particularly of the marginalized groups, and has supported the economic viability of different locales by making clean, safe, reliable water supply accessible and by putting forward proper used water management,” Manila Water said.
To date, the East Zone concessionaire provides 24/7 water and used water services to more than 6.5 million residents in eastern Metro Manila and Rizal Province, while reducing its level of water losses to 11 percent, which is unprecedented in the Philippine water sector.
