Parts of NCR, Cavite face week-long water service interruption

Customers of water concessionaire Maynilad Water Services Inc. in portions of Metro Manila and Cavite should brace for a week-long water service interruption beginning this Sunday.

In an advisory, Maynilad said the water service interruption in parts of Las Piñas City, Muntinlupa City, Parañaque City, Pasay City, Bacoor City, and Imus City will take place from April 16 to April 23. Water services in some of these areas are, however, expected to normalize by April 22.

The water service interruption was due to the ongoing intensified cleaning of filters at the Putatan Water Treatment Plants, according to Maynilad.

“The turbidity level of the raw water in Laguna Lake has been gradually decreasing since the Amihan season ended, but the process is taking longer than anticipated. Due to this, we have to extend our maintenance activities at the plants,” the water concessionaire said.

“Normal operations will be restored once the cleaning of the filters is completed,” it added.

Maynilad advised its affected customers to store enough water when supply is available, and let the water flow out briefly until it clears when the water service resumes. —Giselle Ombay/KG, GMA Integrated News
