Maynilad allots USD 48M to new water infrastructure in Manila City

West Zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) is spending P2.7 billion (about USD 48 million) for the period 2023 to 2027 for its Non-Revenue Water (NRW) Management Program in the City of Manila alone, where water loss is the highest due to an aging pipe network and rampant illegal connections.

Of the said amount, P2.4 billion will go towards pipe replacement projects, while P151 million will be used for leak repairs. The remaining P190 million will be spent for network diagnostics and leak detection, among other activities.

“It is in Manila City where the oldest section of the pipe network that we inherited from the government is located. To reduce water losses in this area, we have already replaced 701 kilometers of old pipes since 2007,” said Maynilad Chief Operating Officer Randolph T. Estrellado.

He added that this accomplishment was made possible thanks to the assistance extended by the local government of Manila on the issuance of permits and the management of traffic for pipe replacement and leak repair projects.

The P2.7 billion allocation for the City of Manila is part of the P16.5-billion (USD 295 million) NRW Management Program of Maynilad for 2023 to 2027, which aims to further reduce water losses in the West Zone.

Maynilad is the largest private water concessionaire in the Philippines in terms of customer base.  It is the concessionaire of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) for the West Zone of the Greater Manila Area, which is composed of the cities of Manila (all but portions of San Andres & Sta. Ana), Quezon City (west of San Juan River, West Avenue, EDSA, Congressional, Mindanao Avenue, the northern part starting from the Districts of the Holy Spirit & Batasan Hills), Makati (west of South Super Highway), Caloocan, Pasay, Parañaque, Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Valenzuela, Navotas and Malabon, all in Metro Manila; the cities of Cavite, Bacoor and Imus, and the towns of Kawit, Noveleta and Rosario, all in the Cavite Province.
