The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) sees an improving situation in parts of Metro Manila experiencing water service interruptions in the coming weeks with the additional water supply from the National Water Resource Board (NWRB), the Maynilad Water Services Inc. (MWSI), including the water treatment plant of Manila Water Co. Inc. (MWCI) in Cardona, Rizal province.

DENR Undersecretary Benny Antiporda said the DENR has already coordinated with the three water agencies to easen up parts of Metro Manila experiencing water shortage serviced by MWCI with a total additional water supply of 180 million liter a day (MLD) that will be obtained by April.

“Within next week or two, magtutuloy-tuloynayan,” Antiporda said, noting that MWCI’s Cardona water treatment facility is expected to yield 22 MLD by the end of March before reaching a capacity yield of 50 MLD by April.

He also said the three agencies met at the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) office in Quezon City yesterday (March 14) where Maynilad committed to allocate some 20 MLD to MWCI by the end of March, and increasing it to 50 MLD by April.

From the NWRB side, Antiporda said the agency projects an additional allocation of 30 MLD by April with the reactivation of deep wells. The MWSS will be responsible for operating the deepwells, Antiporda added.

He said the NWRB likewise expects another 50 MLD to be sourced from the deepwells after April, for a total of 80 MLD.

“We expect a big improvement in the situation, not go worse,” Antiporda said.
