MANILA, Philippines, May 10, 2011 -- Major water company Maynilad Water Services from the Philippines will be investing PHP110 million (1.8 million euros approx.) to build three additional water reservoirs in Quezon City.
Once completed, the three reservoirs will have a combined capacity of 10,000 m3 - enough water to supply nearly 12,000 households.
The reservoirs will help the firm store water during off-peak periods for distribution to customers during high-demand. Additional supplies will also help alleviate supplies from the Angat Dam. Due to high elevation, some areas in Quirino and Roosevelt in Quezon City are often affected by water supply reductions from this source.
Maynilad president and CEO Ricky Vargas said: “We want to improve water supply reliability in Quirino and Roosevelt at the soonest possible time so we are adopting modular designs in building these reservoirs."
