“Mayroon mga lugar na aabutin ng hanggang 20 hours a day walang tubig. Apat na oras po silang magkakaroon ng tubig pero sigurado po na within those 4 hours ay mayroon silang tubig sa mga gripo nila,” Galang said.

(There will be places where there will be no water for 20 hours a day. They will have water for four hours and in those hours there will certainly be water flowing from their faucets.)

She said that most of the barangays will have 11-hour interruptions while others will have 6-hour interruptions.

Some 52,000 households in Manila Water’s east zone have been suffering from the water interruptions for six days now.

Galang further revealed that a new scheme will be set in place wherein there will be a definite schedule for the water interruption which will be spread across the east zone.
