Manila Water Co. Inc. on Thursday announced that residents of 10 more barangays in Metro Manila and Rizal province would be entitled to a full waiver of their April 2019 water bill.

The company identified the barangays as Barangka Ilaya, Barangka Itaas, Mauway, and Pleasant Hills in Mandaluyong City, Pineda and Ugong in Pasig City, Addition Hills and Santa Lucia in San Juan City, and Macamot and Tatala in Binangonan, Rizal.

Earlier, Manila Water announced zero charges for April for customers in Barangays Addition Hills, Barangka Drive, Plainview, Highway Hills, and Hulo in Mandaluyong City, Kapitolyo, Bagong Ilog, and Oranbo in Pasig City, Upper Bicutan in Taguig City, and Mambog in Binangonan, Rizal.

The water concessionaire is implementing a one-time full bill waiver for customers in areas severely affected by last month’s water service interruptions due to the plunging water level at La Mesa Dam.

Customers in areas not covered by the full waiver will be entitled to a waiver of the minimum charge in their billing.

Manila Water communications manager Dittie Galang said there were some areas in 24 barangays where residents would be entitled to a full waiver.

“As of April 2, we have water availability at scheduled hours at ground-floor level in 98.9 percent of the east zone,” Galang said. “For the remaining problematic areas, we continue to implement technical solutions, such as installing booster pumps and laying pipes.”
