The water delivery trucks of concessionaires Maynilad Water Services Inc. and Manila Water Company Inc. are exempted from the number coding scheme, an official of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority said on Friday.

MMDA chief of staff Michael Salalima said the exemption would help facilitate the delivery of water supply to areas affected by the shortage.

“Our efforts now on the ground is to assist the water delivery of properly labeled water tankers of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System, Manila Water, Maynilad, and other entities doing their social response,” Salalima said.

Earlier, President Duterte ordered the MWSS to demand from its concessionaires the release of water from the Angat Dam starting Friday noon to supply areas in Metro Manila severely affected by the water shortage.

Salalima said the MMDA had been deploying its trucks since last weekend to assist the local government units of Pasig and Mandaluyong in delivering water.

“The MMDA is willing to provide its resources if the LGUs are in need to assistance to deliver water within their jurisdictions. The MMDA will continue its full monitoring of the situation,” Salalima said.
