Maynilad Water Services Inc. hinted at likely water service interruptions within its coverage area, a report by Manila Bulletin said, quoting an official’s radio interview.
“Most likely, magkakaroon (ng water interruptions) kasi malakas ang pangangailangan ng tubig ngayon at mainit ang panahon,” said Jennifer Rufo, Maynilad’s head of corporate communication services, in an interview over DZMM on Wednesday.
Certain parts of Caloocan, Valenzuela and Quezon City will have no water service on some days during the dry season which she explained might be caused by high demand for water due to hot weather during summer season.
Certain areas are still experiencing water interruptions during off-peak hours or early in the day.
Rufo advised Maynilad customers to store enough water as the West Zone concessionaire could not promise round-the-clock water service.
But she assured the public that Angat Dam in Bulacan, the primary source of water for residents in the metropolis and neighboring provinces, has not reached its critical level.
However, Rufo noted Maynilad has a new treatment plant along Laguna Lake which could serve as another source of water.
