West Zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) is constructing a P143-million concrete water reservoir within the La Mesa compound in Novaliches, Quezon City. Expected to be finished by the third quarter of 2014, the impounding facility can hold 10 million liters of water which is enough to meet the daily supply requirements of 555,000 Maynilad customers.
Once energized, the reservoir will help improve water pressure and provide 24-hour water availability in Sacred Heart Village, De la Costa Homes Village, Midway Park, Capitol Parkland Subdivision, Mira Monte Heights, Tala Subdivision, Samara Village, Central Luzon Leprosarium, Victoria Wave Economic Zones, NHS Tala Subdivision, Cefels Park Subdivision, Soldiers Hills, Victory Heights Subdivision, GuadanovilleSubdivision, Mountain Heights, Bankers Village, Pangarap, Adeline Homes andSto. Nino Village, all in North Caloocan.
“Our goal is to provide 24/7 water supply to all of our customers. This additional water reservoir is a step closer to us reaching that goal,” said by Maynilad President and CEO Ricky Vargas.
Since its re-privatization in 2007, Maynilad has built a total of 20 bolted and concrete reservoirs with a combined storage capacity of 535 million liters, to meet the increasing water demands of West Zone water consumers.
