MVP’s Maynilad expands west concession
West zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services Inc. led by Manuel V. Pangilinan said it plans to expand its water service connections by an additional 38,000 this year.
Maynilad said these should translate to around 270,000 more customers that would enjoy reliable supply of potable water.
Maynilad added 30,472 new accounts last year, effectively servicing an additional 208,818 people in its service area.
This brings Maynilad’s total number of accounts to 1,265,625, with Valenzuela, Manila, Imus and Bacoor being the areas with the highest number of new connections as of December 2015.
About 9 million people in the west zone receive 24-hour water supply at an average pressure of 7 to 16 pounds per square inch.
Last month, the water concessionaire launched an online billing facility to make bills payment and inquiries more convenient to its customers.
