Maynilad said it will extend until Nov. 29 the rotational water service interruptions it earlier implemented due to the cleanup of sludge in its treatment plant, according to a report by GMA News.

In an update posted on Twitter,  Maynilad said the water concessionaire will have to clean one of its three basins, which still has sludge from the turbid water brought by Typhoon Ulysses.

“Kinakailangan naming i-extend hanggang sa Nobyembre 29, 2020 ang kasalukuyang rotational water service interruption upang masiguro na ang lahat ng apektadong customers ay magkakatubig sa loob ng ilang oras kada araw,” it said.


Maynilad added that one of the affected basins is already fully operational, while another one is now getting filled with water after being cleared of sludge.

“Ngunit ang pagtanggal ng sludge sa ikatlong basin ay hindi inaasahang mas magtatagal kumpara sa naunang mga basin,” Maynilad said.

“Sa aming huling tantya, aabutin pa ng karagdagang 5 araw para matapos ito pati na rin ang muling pagpapataas ng produksyon ng tubig ng aming planta, at pagpuno ng mga reservoir,” it added.

Initially, the rotational service interruptions were scheduled from November 18 to 24.

Maynilad advised affected customers that the duration of water service interruptions will be shortened daily with the buildup of water in pipelines.

It added that mobile water tankers will make the rounds to deliver water in affected areas.

Maynilad also advised customers of possible discoloration of water when supply returns. The concessionaire instructed customers to let the water flow first until it clears.

“Maaari din gumamit ng malinis na tela bilang filter, siguraduhin lamang na regular itong papalitan. Pakuluan naman ang tubig na gagamiting inumin,” Maynilad said.

“Paumanhin sa abalang dulot nito. Maraming salamat sa inyong pang-unawa,” it added.
