Manila Water Company Inc., a unit of the Ayala Group, is set to construct biggest sewer network system project in the Philippines.
Abelardo Basilio, Manila Water Strategic Asset Management Group director, said in a statement that the P1.9-billion Taguig North Sewer Network 3 Project will benefit an estimated 500,000 residents of Taguig, Makati and other nearby cities.
The 12-kilometer sewer network and relief line project is the first major sewer network system project to be built by Manila Water since it started implementing its Wastewater Master Plan. The project will also adopt a separate system approach that will collect domestic wastewater through a dedicated sewer network.
“This project is a breakthrough in the company’s commitment in wastewater service provision, since Manila Water aims to expand its sewerage service coverage within the East Zone concession area,” Basilio said.
The official also stressed that this is also the first time that Manila Water will use a new technology for sewer network, a trenchless methodology in pipelaying, to reduce traffic impact and inconvenience to commuters.
“Manila Water believes that the project will largely contribute to the improvement of the quality of water bodies in the metropolis, as this will help protect the environment by building more wastewater infrastructure to prevent contamination and pollution of the three rivers in its concession area namely San Juan, Marikina and Pasig River,” he said.
Basilio said the Taguig North Sewer Network 3 Project can treat up to 75 million liters of wastewater per day catering to the treatment requirements of close to half a million residents in the cities of Taguig, Makati and nearby areas.
The project has been approved by National Capital Region-Regional Development Council.
Aside from the said project, Manila Water has also lined up the construction of other wastewater treatment facilities to increase the company’s total wastewater treatment capacity to more than 500 million liters per day, from the current 135 million liters per day.
