Temporary lang yan, padating na ulan: Maynilad assures return of adequate supply of high quality water

West zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services Inc. assured that water supply would improve soon as the onset of the rainy season would help bring its production back to normal levels and address the issues brought about by the algal bloom.

Maynilad said it is in discussions with the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System on the recent water supply interruption issue brought about by the resurgence of the algal bloom in the Laguna Lake, which is hampering water production in Maynilad Putatan water treatment plants.

“Maynilad acknowledged the concerns raised by MWSS and is doing everything necessary to restore normal service given current constraints on the quality of the raw water source.

The utility firm controlled by bilyonaryo Manny V. Pangilinan-led Metro Pacific Investments Corp., also “believes that the situation is temporary and expects the onset of the rainy season will dissipate the effect of the algal bloom on the Laguna Lake’s raw water supply.”

Maynilad said ongoing treatment interventions have resulted in a quicker resolution of the algal bloom episode compared to previous years, as gradual increase in its water production is already being felt despite the persistent high algal count in the Laguna Lake.

In the meantime, Maynilad continues to mitigate the effects of the incident to its affected customers by delivering potable water through mobile tankers and announcing a daily supply availability schedule so that affected customers can store water for their needs.
