RIZAL, Philippines – Manila Water has switched on its Cardona Water Treatment Plant on March 14, 2019 following completion of Phase 1 of the project, just in time when La Mesa Dam’s water level dropped to critical and the water shortage began hitting customers hard.

Running in full capacity, it can produce up to 100 million liters per day (MLD) to supply about 800,000 population.

The facility is now providing water in several towns in Rizal.

Initially, it has begun distributing up to 24MLD to several barangays in the municipalities of Binangonan, Angono, Baras and Jalajala in Rizal.

The Manila Water promised other areas will soon receive water when the plant’s production increases in the coming months.

The Cardona WTP, which draws water from Laguna Lake, is expected to help augment water supply for the East Zone, Manila Water said on its website.

The Phase 2 of the construction is expected to complete by August. – Marje Pelayo
