The cross-border sharing enables Maynilad to tap from Manila Water’s treated water distribution network to alleviate its current water woes.
WD News: Manila Water Company (MWC) is continuing to extend cross-border sharing to Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (MWSI) to alleviate supply woes in the latter’s concession area.
Manila Water has been providing up to 22 million litres of water per day (MLD) since the fourth quarter of 2022 in two locations along Aurora Boulevard in Quezon City. To further accelerate and bump up supply to Maynilad’s network, Manila Water also energised another sharing point on the East Service Road in Paranaque on February 15 this year. As of May 3, this sharing point adds up to 1.28 MLD to the West Zone concessionaire.
There are also three sharing sites on standby that are ready to assist Maynilad if the need arises. These are in Don Jose (Kimco Subdivision), Greenville, and along West Avenue in Manila Water’s Quezon City Service Area.
Manila Water has also agreed to four additional cross-border sharing sites. The Payatas-East La Mesa site could provide an additional 5 MLD to Maynilad. At Manila Water’s Quezon City Service Area, the Luzon-Mapayapa and Sauyo sites have the potential to transfer another 5 MLD. On the other hand, the A. Francisco site under Manila Water’s Makati-Mandaluyong Service Area is expected to provide another 10 MLD to Maynilad.
