Maynilad customers to experience water supply interruption
Maynilad Water Services, Inc. said the company will be implementing another interruption starting 3 pm today.
The company said that as of yesterday, Maynilad’s La Mesa Treatment Plants still received less than its proper allocation of raw water supply. Maynilad is entitled to receive 60 percent of raw water but it has been getting less since April 1 (Sunday), and this resulted to a significant drop in the company’s stored water.
“Given this situation, Maynilad is constrained to implement daily service interruptions, which will affect some portions of its concession area. Interruption schedules will be announced on a daily basis, as the schedule will be determined by the amount of raw water that our La Mesa Treatment Plants are able to receive,” Maynilad said.
Today, the same Maynilad customers who were affected by the service interruptions since April 12 because of this issue will experience low water pressure to no water supply starting 3 p.m. today until 4 a.m. tomorrow.
Affected customers are advised to store water during times of the day when supply is available. Maynilad will also be deploying water tankers on standby, ready to deliver water upon request.
