Manila Water intensifies service expansion projects for Rizal Province
Manila Water’s mission to deliver world-class services tailored to the needs of the communities it serves continues, as the Company boosts the implementation of its service expansion program this year particularly for Rizal Province.
Manila Water is set to spend P833 million for projects slated for implementation this year in Rizal Province which include 23 mainline extension and individualization projects.
Eleven mainline extension projects will be done in several municipalities in Rizal, namely: five projects in Baras; four in Rodriguez, in Metro Royale Homes, Amityville, Emmaus Compound and along Marang Road; and two projects in Binangonan located in Sitio Balatik and Sitio Wawa.
In Antipolo City, ten mainline extension projects are set to be completed this year which include two projects in Sitio Tanza and Tolosa Ville; another two projects in Barangay Calawis; additional two projects in Cabading and Heroes Ville; one project in Sitio Painuman and Sitio Kalakad; one project in Pedra Blanca Homes and Sitio Culasisi; a project in Boso-Boso, and a mainline extension and individualization project in Queenstock Heights.
Individualization projects will also be done in Town and Country Executive Village in Antipolo and Aurora Subdivision in Angono.
Once these projects are completed, they are expected to bring better water quality, pressure, and supply to a total of 45,205 families in Rizal.
Under the company’s P181-B Service Improvement Plan for 2023-2027, Manila Water will invest a total capital expenditure of P2.8-B for its service expansion program. Priorities for service expansion include the underserved and still-unserved areas as well as marginalized communities in its service area particularly in booming Rizal Province.
Despite challenges in terrain, Manila Water continuously reaches out to its customers, extending its water network and constructing new facilities even in the highest and farthest parts of Rizal to provide water access to its new customers, and better service for their existing customers.
In 2022 alone, the Company has installed a total of 33,070 new domestic water service connections, which translates to 165,350 families now enjoying 24/7 water supply and quality water and sanitation services from Manila Water. This brings to 1,095,143 the total number of domestic connections that Manila Water serves by the end of 2022.
