In light of the health crisis being experienced in evacuation centers in Albay due to lack of safe potable water, water concessionaires Manila Water and Maynilad, led by regulator Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS), deployed three units of mobile treatment plants (MTP) to the province currently being affected by the eruption of Mayon Volcano.
As part of its 140th founding anniversary, the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) presented and unveiled “The Palafox Masterplan for the MWSS Water Eco-Tourism Hub,” a joint project of Manila Water and Maynilad in celebration of 20 years of successful partnership, at the MWSS Lobby last February 1.
Manila Water will implement a 2.8% Consumer Price Index adjustment on the 2017 basic charge effective January 1, 2018 following the approval and confirmation of the new rates by the MWSS Regulatory Office as contained in its Resolution No. 2017-08-CA dated October 18, 2017 and the MWSS Board of Trustees as contained in the Resolution No. 2017-140-RO dated October 26, 2017.
