Parts of Metro, Rizal to experience 7-hour-long low water pressure starting Monday
MANILA Water Co. Inc. said some of its customers would experience reduced water pressure at off-peak hours starting Monday to conserve water supply at Angat Dam due to the El Niño phenomenon which is characterized by lower than average rainfall.
The Ayala-led company said that beginning today, 155 barangays in Metro Manila and Rizal province would experience below normal water pressure between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.
The cities of Makati, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Pasig, Quezon City, San Juan, Taguig, Parañaque in Metro Manila; Antipolo City and the municipalities of Angono, Cainta and Taytay in Rizal province are among those that will experience reduced water pressure for up to seven hours daily.
