NOTICE OF WATER SERVICE INTERRUPTION: Completion of Remaining Works at Cardona Water Treatment Plant
Manila Water will be completing remaining works at its Cardona Water Treatment Plant in Rizal. This will result to temporary water service interruption affecting around 363,000 population in 72,521 households, commercial and business establishments in 54 barangays in several towns in Rizal Province, beginning Wednesday, December 4, 2019 at 10:00 PM until 6:00 AM, Thursday, December 5, 2019.
Manila Water, through the Manila Water Foundation, Inc. (MWF), readily came to the aid of the victims of the recent earthquake in Mindanao, by providing much-needed drinking water to the evacuation centers in North Cotabato and Davao del Sur, which were hardest-hit in the series of tremors experienced last week. Through coordination with various government agencies, MWF was able to bring in two thousand twenty (2,020) 5-gallon bottles of Healthy Family drinking water to the evacuation centers in Kidapawan City and the towns of Makilala and Tulunan in North Cotabato, and three hundred (300) bottles to Magsaysay town in Davao Del Sur.
#TubigAdvisory SCHEDULE OF POSSIBLE ROTATIONAL WATER SERVICE INTERRUPTION IN METRO MANILA AND RIZAL PROVINCE STARTING OCT. 24, 2019
As we have consistently warned since last week, since the water level at Angat Dam continues to decline, Manila Water will begin implementing rotational water service interruption on the evening of October 24, 2019. This is necessary because we want to ensure that the still-limited raw water supply will last even beyond the summer of 2020 since Angat Dam may not reach its ideal 212-meter level by the end of 2019. As such, we enjoin our customers to use water wisely and responsibly. Please store water when available, and just at enough amount to serve your needs during hours of service interruption.
The Board of Trustees of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) has approved the fourth-quarter Foreign Currency Differential Adjustment (FCDA) of 2.43% of the basic charge, equivalent to P0.69 per cubic meter, effective October 13, 2019. The FCDA is only a pass-through device and has no impact on the projected net income of the company.
