Pacific and DMCI-led Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) spent P344
million to complete its pipe-laying projects along Marcos Alvarez in Las Piñas
City. This project involved the laying of over 61 kilometers of primary, secondary
and tertiary lines along Marcos Alvarez from the Alabang-Zapote Road to Topaz
St., including adjacent areas.
project is set to connect more than 11,200 new accounts to Maynilad’s water
distribution network. For decades, villages and subdivisions in the area relied on unsafe water delivery services and private deep wells for
their daily water supply.
To further improve service levels in the south,
Maynilad is currently constructing the P73.6-million Marcos Alvarez
Booster Pump Station. Once completed, this
facility will connect an additional 49,000 accounts from Cavite.
booster pump station will also improve water pressure to existing customers
from 4–16 psi (pounds per square inch) to 16–20 psi. It takes about
7 psi for water to reach the second
floor of a building.
aggressive infrastructure projects in the south district of Metro Manila is
part of our commitment to provide more people with access to safe and reliable
surface water, so they don't have to use deep wells or buy expensive water from
vendors,” said Maynilad President and CEO Ricky P. Vargas.
