Manila Water’s desludging program goes full blast
Manila Water Company, Inc. said that its desludging program, which is being done ever five years, is now on-going to ensure that the used water and sewage collected from the septic tanks undergo treatment at the two septage treatment plants of Manila Water.
“As the private concessionaire of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System, the services of Manila Water go beyond providing potable and accessible water to the East Zone of Metro Manila and Rizal Province,” Manila Water said.
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.
Desludging of septic tanks has been highly encouraged and does not incur any additional cost on the part of the customer.
This, as 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.
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.
For August of this year, the following barangays are scheduled for desludging: Brgy. Pembo in Makati, Brgy. Mauway in Mandaluyong, Brgy. Sto Rosario Kanluran in Pateros, Brgy. E. Rodriguez in Quezon City, Brgy. Tibagan in San Juan and Brgy. Ampid 1 in San Mateo, Rizal.
