Maynilad customers in Muntinlupa to suffer daily 10-hour water service interruptions

Customers of Maynilad Water Services in Muntinlupa will suffer more daily water service interruptions (WSI) until the end of the month.

Maynilad announced on July 5 that customers in Barangays Alabang, Bayanan, Poblacion, Putatan, and Tunasan “will experience water service interruptions daily, between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. from July 6, 2022 to July 31, 2022 due to raw water quality issue from Laguna Lake entering our Putatan Treatment Plant.”

“We are continuously monitoring the water quality in Laguna Lake even as we conduct system adjustments to optimize the limited supply,” Maynilad added in its advisory to customers.

The Putatan Water Treatment Plant draws and processes water from Laguna Lake, and supplies it to customers in Muntinlupa and other areas.

It was not immediately known why the new daily WSIs only cover five of the nine barangays.

Excluded from the daily WSIs are Barangays Ayala Alabang (which covers the posh Ayala Alabang Village), Cupang, Buli and Sucat.

Muntinlupa customers have been suffering from Maynilad’s WSIs since May. Over the weekend, Maynilad implemented a 28-hour WSI in Muntinlupa.

Customers have complained about the brownish water coming out of their faucets.
