CUSTOMERS in many parts of Metro Manila are experiencing water service interruption until Tuesday because of limited supply, Maynilad Water Services, Inc. announced on Sunday.
“To optimize the limited supply, we are constrained to implement service interruptions daily, starting from Sept. 16, 2018 (Sunday) until Sept. 18, 2018 (Tuesday),” Maynilad said in its Facebook post.
The West Zone concessionaire was prompted to reduce its water production at its treatment plants due to the heavy rainfall caused by Typhoon Ompong (international name: Mangkhut), which increased the turbidity of the raw water coming from Ipo Dam.
Turbidity refers to the increased sediment concentrations in raw water.
Affected areas include some parts of the cities of Caloocan, Las Piñas, Makati, Malabon, Marikina, Navotas, Quezon, Parañaque, Pasay, Valenzuela, as well as Mecauayan and Obando in Bulacan and Imus and Bacoor in Cavite.
