Manila Water announces desludging schedule for the 1st quarter of 2023
As the new year opens, Manila Water renews its commitment in providing wastewater services that are easily available to its customers, as it announces the schedule of its monthly desludging caravan for the 1st quarter of 2023.
This January, Manila Water’s desludging services will be available in Barangay 765, 767, 775, 790, 791, 796, and 798 in the City of Manila, Barangay Bagong Ilog in Pasig City, Barangay Batingan and Mahabang Parang in Binangonan and Barangay Mahabang Parang in Angono, Rizal.
For the month of February, the desludging caravan will go around Barangay Magtanggol and Tabacalera in the municipality of Pateros, and Tandang Sora and Krus na Ligas in Quezon City. Desluding services will also be available again to residents of Mahabang Parang, Angono, Barangay Batingan and Mahabang Parang in Binangonan, Barangays 765, 767, 775, 790, 791, 796, and 798 in the City of Manila, and Barangay Bagong Ilog in Pasig City.
In March, the desludging caravan will go back to the same barangays in Manila, Barangay Bagong Ilog in Pasig City, Tandang Sora and Krus na Ligas in Quezon City and will also visit Barangay UP Campus. Desludging services will also be available to customers in Barangay Martirez del 96 and Santo Rosario-Kanluran in Pateros, Barangays 764, 769, 776, 778, 877, 878, 879, and 880 in Manila, Barangay Sta. Lucia in Pasig City, and Barangay San Isidro in Cainta, Rizal.
Having septic tanks cleaned every 5 to 7 years is vital, not only for regular septic tank maintenance, but also for the protection of the environment and the community as well.
“From January to September 2022, we have siphoned more than 84,000 septic tanks in our service area. This year, we aim to ramp up our desludging caravan and hit our goal of desludging more than 100,000 septic tanks, which is crucial in ensuring that the collected used water will be properly treated through Manila Water’s septage treatment plants before it is released back to bodies of water. This equates to reduction in public health risk, and water pollution,” says Dittie Galang, Corporate Communications Department Head of Manila Water.
“With this, we continue to encourage our customers to avail of these services when scheduled, to not incur added cost to their water bill,” she added.
To verify the specific date of the desludging caravan’s visit in your barangays, customers can coordinate with their respective barangay council, or by calling the Manila Water Consumer Desk Hotline 1627.
