Waterless Maynilad areas April 16-19

MAYNILAD Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) has so far secured 67 water tankers for affected customers of 800 barangays in Metro Manila and Cavite that will experience water interruption from April 16-19 because of the flood interceptor project of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH). 
However, the water concessionaire will prioritize areas in Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas and Manila that will be waterless  for 72 hours. 
Maynilad also has pending water tanker requests with Manila Water and other private companies, to increase its rationing capacity on Holy Week.
“The private water vendors in our service area have closed shop and sold off their water trucks. This made the leasing of private water tankers for this interruption practically impossible,” said Cherubim Mojica, head of Maynilad’s Corporate Communications. 
Maynilad also appealed to its affected customers to prepare well for the Holy Week water service interruption, by storing enough water in clean containers. Water-intensive house chores like cleaning and cooking should also be done ahead of the water cut-off, to limit water consumption. 
The complete list of affected areas and their corresponding water interruption schedules may be downloaded from http://www.mayniladwater.com.ph/news_center.php. Maynilad will also publish a copy of its Holy Week water interruption schedule in selected newspapers and tabloids on April 14.
