Manila Water to adjust operations as water level dips at La Mesa Dam
MANILA, Philippines — Manila Water has announced that it would implement adjustments in its operations due to the rapid decline of the water level at La Mesa Dam.
In a statement issued on Monday, the company said the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services’ (Pagasa) El Niño advisory serves as a warning that the climate condition could pose a threat to Metro Manila’s domestic water supply.
With this, some areas in Marikina, Pasig, Quezon City, Taguig, and Antipolo, San Mateo, Rodriguez, Taytay, and Jalajala in Rizal, will experience “low pressure to no water” during peak demand hours.
These are the affected barangays:
Central Signal Village
New Lower Bicutan
North Signal Village
South Signal Village
San Mateo, Rizal
Dulong Bayan 1
Dulong Bayan 2
Guitnang Bayan 1
Guitnang Bayan 2
Manila Water also advised affected residents to store enough water during these periods. /ee
