Manila Water goes full blast on desluding services
Manila Water said its desludging services this year are now on full blast, which is in line with its advocacy of water sustainability and environmental stewardship including campaigns for desludging of septic tanks.
In 2017 alone, Manila Water desludged a total of 108,505 septic vaults.
As the desludging program is done every five years, 15 barangays under the concession area of Manila Water became beneficiaries of its desludging schedule for the first quarter of this year.
These were Brgy. San Isidro in Angono, Brgy. Beverly Hills, San Juan, and Inarawan in Antipolo, Brgy. San Pedro Poblacion, San Juan Poblacion, San Guillermo and Bonbongan in Morong, Brgy. Ugong in Pasig, Brgy. Magtanggol and Tabcalera in Pateros, Brgy. Beverly Hills in Taytay, Brgy. Rosario in Rodriguez, and Brgy. Bagong Lipunan in Quezon City.
Desludging services were also provided to the following barangays: Brgy. Mambungan in Antipolo, Brgy. East Rembo in Makati, Brgy. Addition Hills and Pleasant Hills in Mandaluyong, Brgy. San Roque in Marikina, Brgy. Ibayo Tipas in Taguig, Brgy. Corazon de Jesus and Kabayanan in San Juan, Brgy. San Isidro in Rodriguez, and Brgy. Kaunlaran in Quezon City.
Manila Water has emphasized the importance of regular cleaning of septic tanks to maintain the cleanliness of creeks, rivers and other water bodies to prevent untreated used water from directly flowing to these waterways.
Desludging of septic tanks has been highly encouraged and consumers are paying for it.
The program ensures that the used water and sewage collected from the septic
tanks undergo treatment at the two septage treatment plants of Manila Water.
Right now, desludging services are ongoing at Brgy San Isidro in Cainta, Brgy. Mauway and San Jose in Mandaluyong, Brgy. Parang, Marikina Heights, and Barangka in Marikina, Brgy. Sta. Lucia and Dela Paz in Pasig, Brgy. Martires del 96 in Pateros, Brgy. Culiat and West Kamias in Quezon City, Brgy. Burgos in Rodriguez; Brgy. Progreso and Tibagan in San Juan, Brgy. Sto. Nino in San Mateo, and Brgy Dolores in Taytay.
