Maynilad and Manila Water has assured the public they will be able to provide enough water supply amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) threat.

This is despite the continuous water level reduction in Angat Dam.

According to Maynilad Asst. Manager on Media Relations Grace Laxa, in order to keep providing enough water supply to their customers, they have to implement water service interruptions.

Mayroon tayong sapat na nirarasyon sa ating mga customers. Pero iyon nga mag-ipon sila sa oras na itinakda sa kanilang lugar, (We have enough water supply rationed to our customers. But they have to fill their supplies depending on the schedule in their area)” she said.

Meanwhile, Manila Water Spokesperson Jeric Sevilla said they will only implement water interruptions in the evenings in order for their customers to still be able to do household chores including disinfection.

“For most times of the day ay mayroon tayong tubig, (we have water)” he said.

The water concessionaires also advise the public not to hoard water supply which could cause more problems on top of the COVID-19 threat.—AAC (with reports from Joan Nano)
