(Eagle News) — Starting Friday, Sept. 27, customers of Maynilad Water Services Inc., will experience an 11-day service interruption as it upgrades its water treatment plant in Putatan.
In an advisory, Maynilad said that the daily water service interruptions will be felt in several portions of their concession area from Sept. 27 to October 7, 2019, including portions of Las Piñas, Parañaque, Muntinlupa and Cavite.
He said that the implementation of the second phase of the Putatan Water Treatment Plant 2 Project is targeted to “increase the facility’s production capacity from 100 MLD (million liters per day) to 150 MLD.”
Maynilad said that this is “part of its continuous effort to improve water services in the West Zone.”
“The project involves the enhancement of Ultrafiltration (UF) and Reverse Osmosis (RO) racks, skids, membranes and the expansion of Biological Aerated Filter (BAF) treatment process at PWTP2. Implementing these activities will require the temporary shutdown of PWTP2 operations for 10 days,” Maynilad said in its advisory.
“This project will boost the total water production output of Maynilad’s treatment facilities in the Laguna Lake area to 300 MLD from the current 250 MLD. With this increased output, Maynilad can lengthen supply availability and improve service reliability for its customers in the south,” it said.
Maynilad further advised affected customers “to store enough water for the duration of the water service interruption.”
It said that it would put 30 water tankers on standby, ready to deliver water to affected areas as needed.
