Maynilad has announced that water supply returned to normal but this will only last until tonight.

“We may only be able to sustain this until 8 p.m., as we continue to experience monsoon rains over the Ipo watershed which could increase the turbidity level,” Maynilad said it its advisory.

As of 3 p.m. yesterday, there was improved water supply in Maynilad’s service areas and this will be sustained if the turbidity level of the raw water stays normal.

Areas affected by water interruptions are some barangays in Quezon City, Valenzuela, Manila (whole areas of Sampaloc, Quiapo, San Miguel, Sta. Cruz and Sta. Mesa), and selected areas in Caloocan, Parañaque, Pasay, Navotas, Muntinlupa, Malabon, Makati, and Las Piñas.

Also affected were areas outside Metro Manila such as Imus, Cavite City, Noveleta, Rosario, Kawit, and Bacoor in Cavite.

Maynilad said customers will continue to experience low pressure to no water, as well as some discoloration in the water supply but Maynilad said the water remains safe for domestic use.

“To help reduce the sediments, customers can let the water stand in a container for a few hours before using the water so the sediments will settle at the bottom,” Maynilad said.

At least 54 mobile water tankers have been deployed to deliver potable water to affected areas. Customers may request water tanker delivery through special water tanker hotline 737-3311.
