Water allocation sharing between concessionaires in the works

Water allocation sharing between concessionaires in the works

In a bid to help Manila Water and its customers in the East Zone of Metro Manila, Maynilad Water Services Inc. on Tuesday committed to share 50 million liters of its daily water allocation.

“The allocation will be given in full by April, but it will be staggered, depending on related projects that will be finished in our boundary lines,” said Engineer Ronald Padua, Maynilad Water supply operations head.

The offer comes at the heels of a series of water service interruptions in the metropolis’ East Zone caused by the drop in water level at the La Mesa Dam, where Manila Water sources its supply.

The water sharing between the two concessionaires would be carried out through a “cross-border flow” arrangement, Padua said.

At each identified cross-border line, around eight million to 10 million liters of water per day would be allocated.

“The cross-border flow would cross different boundary points in Metro Manila. We are already seeing points in Quezon City,” Padua said.

The volume of water that Maynilad has agreed to share is expected to supply at least 50,000 households.

Maynilad, which sources its raw supply from Angat Dam and Laguna Lake, would draw the 50 million liters of water from the lake through its new water treatment facility in Muntinlupa.

While the treatment plant is still under construction, Maynilad will deploy five tankers of water to affected consumers of Manila Water, in coordination with the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System.
