Maynilad says water safe to drink despite discoloration

Maynilad Water Services Inc. said it said was aware of concerns about the color of its water but assured its customers that the water is harmless and is safe to use.

In an interview with CNN Philippines, Maynilad spokesperson Grace Laxa Laxa assured Maynilad cistomers that they were doing their best to finish the clearing operations in their basins ahead of schedule.

“Wala po tayong tigil sa paglilinis sa ating mga basin sa planta para matangal ang naipong putik patuloy din ang aming pagmonitor sa quality ng raw water na nagmumula sa ipo dam para maximize namin ang production kahit on going ang aming clearing operation. ” Laxa said in an interview with CNN Philippines.

Laxa also apologized to Maynilad customers especially those who experienced days of no water supply.

She also appealed to the local government units and the Bureau of Fire Protection to help them in distributing water to the affected areas.

Increased turbidity in the raw water from Ipo Dam constrained Maynilad to scale down water production in its treatment plants.
