Manila Water recently commemorated the strengthening of its partnership with the Local Government of Antipolo City, along with the Department of Natural Resources (DENR), in a simple ceremony held at the Hinulugang Taktak Nature & Adventure Park.
Manila Water is set to build a new 200 million liters per day (MLD) water treatment plant (WTP) which will provide additional supply of potable water to Metro Manila’s East Zone after inking a partnership deal with ACCIONA, PrimeBMD, and Santa Clara International, which form the consortium which will design and construct the facility.
Months before the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) declared the start of the rainy season this month, Manila Water has already carried out measures to ensure its facilities are able to continue operating even with heavy rains, flooding and power outages that come with the monsoon season.
Aside from implementing measures to ensure 24/7 clean water service to its customers, Manila Water is embarking on a massive sewer project to improve sanitation and promote a cleaner environment for Metro Manila communities.
Manila Water concluded 2022 with a total of P20.6B budget in capital expenditures (CapEx), recording the third consecutive highest CapEx for the company, beating 2021 performance by almost P7B. This reaffirms Manila Water’s full commitment to providing safe, reliable, and affordable water access for Filipinos amid the economic downturns brought about by the pandemic-induced domestic inflation.
