Maynilad to cut water when people are home
MANILA, Philippines — Even after the government shut down cemeteries for the traditional memorial days for the dead, Maynilad Water Services Inc. said it would push through with a water supply cut off when most people in Metro Manila are expected to be home.
The West Zone concessionaire of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System earlier slated the disruptive activity from October 25-28. Now it is set to start at 11 a.m. on October 29, Friday, and end at 11:59 p.m. on November 1, Monday.
The company said the activity would take 85 hours or three and a half days, during which time 60,000 customer connections in the Sampaloc district will have no water from that tap.
At the same time, 361,000 other customers in other parts of Manila, as well as the cities of Las Piñas, Makati, Parañaque, and Pasay, and Cavite province, are warned to prepare for at least 15 hours and up to 34 hours without water supply.—RONNEL W. DOMINGO
