Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) recently started operating its state-of-the-art Putatan Water Treatment Plant to supply potable water to an initial 4,585 households in Muntinlupa. The West Zone concessionaire’s Putatan Plant is the first water treatment facility that taps into Laguna Lake as an alternative water source to Angat Dam in Bulacan.
The Putatan plant uses microfiltration and reverse osmosis to treat raw water from Laguna Lake. It has 14 units of microfiltration assemblies and six reverse osmosis assemblies. By July, the plant can produce 50 million liters of water per day (MLD) and another 50 MLD by September this year. Communities in Muntinlupa, Las Piñas and portions of Cavite are expected to benefit from the additional water supply.
The treatment plant in Putatan is in line with Maynilad’s plan to develop alternative sources of water to ensure long-term water security for its customers.
Maynilad Water Services, Inc. is owned and managed by DMCI-MPIC Water Company, Inc. (DMWCI), a joint venture between Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC) and DMCI Holdings, Inc. (DMCIHI). The consortium took control of Maynilad on January 24, 2007.
