MANILA — Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) on Thursday announced it would conduct several water network enhancement activities, including facility maintenance works, pipe decommissioning, pipe interconnections, and valve replacements, during the Holy Week, from April 16, 2019 (Holy Tuesday) to April 20, 2019 (Black Saturday).

Maynilad, , a joint venture of Metro Pacific-Salim and Consunji groups, said this was in line with continuous efforts to improve water services in the West Zone.

Maynilad will also conduct smaller, parallel activities like leak detection and leak repairs, which would otherwise require the implementation of separate service disruptions.

“The duration of service interruptions will differ per area. Some will have no water for five hours only, while others will have no water for 30 hours,” said Maynilad Water Supply Operations head Engr. Ronaldo Padua.

“We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience. These activities are being done so we can continue to improve the water infrastructure and ensure better water services for the long-term,” he added.

Maynilad encourages affected customers to store water at least three days before the scheduled interruption to prevent simultaneous heavy withdrawals of water from its pipelines, which can reduce water pressure and cause some customers to lose water services earlier than scheduled.

The company said it has 40 water tankers on standby, ready to deliver water to affected areas as needed. (PNA)
