MANILA, Philippines — Customers of Maynilad Water Services Inc. may experience water service interruptions until Nov. 29 as the concessionaire continues to clean up water basins in its treatment plant.

In an advisory on Tuesday, Maynilad said it is still removing sludge from the third basin of the treatment plant, which will take longer than expected.


Based on their latest estimate, it will take five more days to fully clean up the basin, to ramp up the water production in the treatment plan, and to fill up the reservoir.


“Dahil dito, kinakailangan naming i-extend hanggang sa Nobyembre 29, 2020 ang kasalukuyang rotational water service interruption upang masiguro na ang lahat ng apektadong customers ay magkakatubig sa loob ng ilang oras kada araw,” the concessionaire said.

(Because of this, we need to extend until Nov. 29 the rotational water service interruption to ensure that all affected customers will have water within a certain period of time in a day.)

Maynilad told its customers to expect that water service interruption will be shorter as buildup of water in their pipeline is continuous.

“Patuloy na mag-iikot ang aming mobile water tankers upang makapag-deliver ng tubig,” it said.

(Our continuous mobile water tankers will go around to deliver water.)

Once water supply is back to normal, the concessionaire said there may be temporary discoloration of water. Maynilad advised customers to let the water run until water is clear.


Customers may also use clean cloth as a filter and boil the water before use.
