MANDALUYONG CITY – Residents in Barangay Addition Hills in Mandaluyong now have access to clean water supply as Manila Water Co. Inc. as part of its efforts to normalize water supply at the earliest possible time, the Manila Standard reported.
Manila Water has completed the declogging of 105 bulk meters from various people’s organizations and installed one 63-millimeter pipe extension for elevated areas and for refilling of static tanks.
It also placed four static tanks (two 10-cubic meter and two 1cu.m.) in Addition Hills Integrated School, DSWD Nayon ng Kabataan, and Addition Hills Barangay Hall.
These areas are scheduled to have water from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., as well as dedicated Manila Water tankers to continuously refill the tanks.
At present, about 90 percent of households, or more than 9,000 houses, in the town are getting clean and potable water from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
As it continuously monitors the water supply in these locations, the Ayala-led company has deployed personnel to continuously evaluate the area for proposed permanent technical and network solutions.
Meanwhile, Manila Water reported that supply has been restored to 96 percent of customers in the East Zone concession area.
Water from the tap is now available to 96 percent of the firm’s customer base, compared to 80 percent last week, with water supply available from 8 to 12 hours, at least at the ground floor level of their residences.
