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.
Manila Water is set to implement new standard water rates after the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System Board of Trustees approved and confirmed the tariff adjustment in its Board Resolution No. 2017-036-RO dated April 5, 2017.
Manila Water Chairman Fernando Zobel de Ayala led the lighting ceremony for company’s pilot Waste-to-Energy (WTE) project recently at the South Septage Treatment Plant (SpTP) in Taguig City. He was joined by Manila Water president and CEO Gerardo Ablaza, Jr., and members of the Senior Leadership Team and Mancom.
