Manila Water recently held the ceremonial contract signing that signals the commencement of the landmark Novaliches-Balara Aqueduct 4 (NBAQ4) project. The Php5.3B NBAQ4 project, one of the largest water supply infrastructure projects undertaken by Manila Water, entails the construction of a fourth aqueduct from the La Mesa Reservoir to the Balara Treatment Plants (BTP) 1 and 2 to improve the reliability and security of the raw water transmission system.
"With this project, urban poor communities in Taytay, Rizal will have individual water connections from Manila Water and can now escape the recurring burden of unjust, expensive water rates from various people’s organizations."
Manila Water posted a net income growth of 3 percent for the 1st semester of 2017, supported by revenue expansion of 4 percent largely bolstered by its non-Manila concession businesses.
The Board of Trustees of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) approved a 1.12% increase or a 28-centavo per cubic meter increase in the Foreign Currency Differential Adjustment (FCDA) for the third quarter of this year for East Zone concessionaire Manila Water Company.
Manila Water has successfully completed the replacement and relocation of a one-meter diameter mainline located at the Parian Creek in Barangay Kapasigan in Pasig City. The said mainline is part of the PG6 and Almeda transmission line that supplies water to barangays at the southeast end of the concession area, considered farthest from the Balara Treatment Plant. The mainline at this portion provides clean potable water to over 80,000 households in the cities of Pasig and Taguig and the municipality of Pateros.
