The rotational water interruptions in some areas will continue until regulators raise the supply allocation, Maynilad said Wednesday.

The consumers’ increase in water consumption was “not that significant” even after the government advised the people to wash their hands frequently to prevent the spread of germs.

“Ngayon sa nakikita natin sa trend, hindi naman po ganon ka significant yung pagtaas sa konsumo ng ating customers,” Maynilad Corporate Communications Head Jennifer Rufo said in an interview with DZMM Teleradyo.

Rufo said the water interruption ranges from five to 18 hours, depending on the area.

“Hangga’t pareho pa din po ang binibigay sa ating alokasyon ng National Water Resources Board, hindi pa din po tayo makakapag list ng rotational interruption, unfortunately,” she explained.

“Hangga’t mababa po yan kahit papano Kailangan natin pagkasyahin yung kaunting supply sa maraming customers,” Rufo continued. “Kung ano po ang binibigay samin ‘yun ang aming i-didistribute.”

Meanwhile, NWRB Executive Director Sevillo David Jr. said that regulators cannot increase the water allocation yet as the Angat Dam is still below its normal operating level.

“Sabi nga po natin nitong mga nakaraang linggo ay medyo tumaas po nang konti. Sa ngayon po nananatili po na medyo mababa po ang allocation na na-rerelease po ng Angat dam para po sa MWSS [Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System] sa kadihalangang sa ganitong level po…” David said. “Gusto po natin mapangalagaan ang supply, mapaabot natin bago po ang [mga] pag ulan.”

“Hindi po natin na-attain yung inaasam nating level dapat para mabigay po ang buong pangagailangan ng Metro water supply,” he continued.
