Laguna Water reached out to more than 600 families in the Province of Laguna who were affected by the havoc wrought by Typhoon Ulysses. In coordination with the Provincial Government of Laguna, the company provided water tankering services to hundreds of homeless, evacuated families in Barangays Dela Paz and Malaban in Biñan City, and Barangays Aplaya and Sinalhan in Santa Rosa City.
Laguna Water, the leading water and wastewater services provider in Laguna, hatarted producing a reliable and cost-effective solution for water treatment and disinfection using salt as the main ingredient. Eliminating health and environmental risks, the company now creates its own sodium hypochlorite (chlorine) with MIOX Corporation's On-Site Sodium Hypochlorite Generator (OSHG). The on-site generated chlorine is proven to be an effective disinfectant which improves bacterial control thus providing better water quality while reducing capital and operation costs. This new process also ensures the health and safety of employees and as well lessen the company’s carbon footprint.
On November 19, the world celebrated World Toilet Day, but the call for proper sanitation does not stop there. Closing its monthlong celebration of World Toilet Day, Manila Water Foundation, Inc., in partnership with Laguna Water, recently gathered over 150 community members at Malaban Elementary School and turned over a three-cubicle public toilet at Barangay Malaban in Biñan City, Laguna, aiming to promote proper sewage management and sanitation practices for its nearby communities. The event promoted the importance of safely managed sanitation in the country, especially for marginalized sectors.
Laguna Water, a public-private partnership between the Provincial Government of Laguna and Manila Water Philippine Ventures, signed a joint venture agreement (JVA) with Pagsanjan Water District (PAGWAD).
