West Zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services Inc. has completed last year the replacement of 133 kilometers of old, leaky pipes as part of its efforts to improve water pressure and service reliability for its customers, according to a report by GMA News.

In a statement, Maynilad said it spent P1 billion for pipe replacements in 2020.

The pipe replacements were conducted in portions of Quezon City, Caloocan, Valenzuela, Navotas, Manila, Pasay, Parañaque, Muntinlupa, Las Piñas as well as Bacoor and Imus in Cavite, according to the Pangilinan-led water distributor.

Since its re-privatization in 2007, Maynilad said it has replaced almost 2,700 kilometers of old pipelines—which is as long as the distance between Manila and Seoul, South Korea. 

With this, the company said it has already renewed around 67% of the pipe network it inherited from the government in 2007, some segments of which were installed as far back as World War II. 

“Despite quarantine restrictions, we pursued our pipe replacement projects so we can sustain service level enhancements for our customers. At the same time, it enabled us to continue generating much-needed jobs for our contractors and suppliers,” said Maynilad resident and CEO Ramoncito Fernandez.

Maynilad is the agent and contractor of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) for the West Zone of the Greater Manila Area, which is composed of the cities of Manila (certain portions), Quezon City (certain portions), Makati (west of South Super Highway), Caloocan, Pasay, Parañaque, Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Valenzuela, Navotas and Malabon all in Metro Manila; the cities of Cavite, Bacoor and Imus, and the towns of Kawit, Noveleta and Rosario, all in Cavite Province.
