Mandaluyong officials meet with Manila Water over supply shortage


Local officials of Mandaluyong City led by Mayor Menchie Abalos met with executives from Manila Water Monday amid the water shortage being experienced in several barangays.

Councilor Charisse Abalos said Manila Water officials told them that the water shortage will continue due to low supply caused by El Nino.

To ease the inconvenience that the service interruption is causing, Abalos said they asked Manila Water to stick to their schedule for restoring water connection. She said they will also study the possibility of rationing water.

The councilor said they are still waiting for the water concessionaire’s commitment on improving service to customers.

At least 12 barangays in Mandaluyong experience little to no water supply daily due to the service interruption.
