Maynilad announces service interruptions
Maynilad Water Services said it is compelled to implement service interruptions on Thursday as the turbidity level of raw water increased due to Typhoon Ulysses, according to a report by GMA News.
In an advisory, Maynilad said the following areas will experience service interruptions as it was constrained to reduce water production in its treatment plants.
- Quezon City
- Las Piñas
- parts of Cavite
“The duration of the service interruptions will gradually shorten as the turbidity dissipates. Meantime, affected customers are advised to store water when supply is available,” Maynilad said.
In an interview on GMA News TV, Maynilad Water Supply Operations head Ronald Padua said the water service interruption will be rotational to give customers ample time to store water.
The company said it had to reduce the production of its La Mesa Treatment Plants in Quezon City at 7 a.m., “as the turbidity of the raw water coming from Ipo Dam increased due to the strong rains brought on by Typhoon Ulysses.”
“The reduction, done to ensure that the quality of water our customers receive will be maintained, also led to low water pressure and emergency service interruptions in some areas,” it said.
Maynilad said water production will be maintained at reduced levels until the turbidity decreases to manageable levels.
Padua said the company is seeing a downtrend in the level of turbidity in Ipo Dam.
However, he said the return to normal services still depends on the quality of raw water.
