MANILA, Philippines - West Zone Water concessionaire Maynilad Water Services (Maynilad) has completed its P344-million pipe-laying project along Marcos Alvarez in Las Piñas City.

In a statement, Maynilad said the project involved the laying of over 61 kilometers of primary, secondary and tertiary lines along Marcos Alvarez from the Alabang-Zapote Road to Topaz St., including adjacent areas.

The recently-finished project was started last year.

The project will connect more than 11,200 new accounts to Maynilad’s water distribution network.

To improve the quality of its service in the south, Maynilad said the P73.6-million Marcos Alvarez booster pump station is currently being constructed. Once completed, the facility will add 49,000 more accounts from Cavite.

The booster pump station will also improve water pressure to existing customers from four psi to 16 psi (pounds per square inch) to 16–20 psi. It takes about seven psi for water to reach the second floor of a building.

“Our aggressive infrastructure projects in the south district of Metro Manila is part of our commitment to provide more people with access to safe and reliable surface water, so they don’t have to use deep wells or buy expensive water from vendors,” said Maynilad president and CEO Ricky P. Vargas.

For 2012, Maynilad earmarked P3.08 billion to improve and expand its water services in Parañaque, Muntinlupa, Las Piñas and Cavite.

Maynilad is the largest concessionaire in the Philippines in terms of customer base.

It is a 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 and 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 and 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 Kawit, Noveleta and Rosario, all in the province of Cavite.
