West Zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) has made significant progress in its P7.9-billion massive upgrade of La Mesa Treatment Plants (LMTP) 1 and 2 in Quezon City, and has recently commissioned several upgraded facilities within the complex.
In a statement, Maynilad said it recently commissioned its upgraded facilities at LMTP 1 in Quezon City.
To be specific, the company already completed the rehabilitation of eight sedimentation basins and 16 filters, as well as the construction of a new sludge treatment facility.
This is only part of Maynilad’s P7.9-billion project to upgrade the LMTP 1 and 2 that together produce around 2,400 million liters of water per day, serving around 90 percent of the company’s 9.7 million customers.
Once all upgrades are completed, LMTP 1 and 2 will have enhanced treatment capacity, automated processes, and earthquake-resilient structures.
The upgrade, which started in 2017, is being done in phases so that the facilities can operate without interrupting water services for Maynilad customers.
Maynilad is the largest private water concessionaire in the Philippines in terms of customer base.
It is the agent and contractor of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) for the West Zone of the Greater Manila Area, which is composed of the cities of Manila (certain portions), Quezon City (certain portions), Makati (west of South Super Highway), Caloocan, Pasay, Parañaque, Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Valenzuela, Navotas and Malabon all in Metro Manila; the cities of Cavite, Bacoor and Imus, and the towns of Kawit, Noveleta and Rosario, all in Cavite Province.
