West zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services Inc. (Maynilad) said Monday it wrapped up a P208-million pipe replacement project in Sampaloc, Manila to improve water pressure and reduce water leakage in the service area.

The water company replaced a kilometer of old, leaky primary lines along Maria Clara and Quiricada Streets.

“The water we were able to recover from this project adds to the available supply that we distribute to our customers, thus helping to augment water supply this El Niño season. We aim to fast-track similar pipe replacement activities in other areas of our concession so we can further boost water recovery,” said Maynilad president and chief executive Ramoncito Fernandez.

It said that with the project’s completion, water pressure in six Sampaloc barangays increased from 7 psi (pounds per square inch) to 16 psi, benefitting more than 40,200 residents.

A 16-psi pressure enables water to goes up to the third story of a building without booster pump.

The project also enabled Maynilad to recover around 3 million liters per day (MLD) of potable water which is enough to meet the water requirements of over 21,000 customers.

Maynilad is the largest private water concessionaire in the Philippines in terms of customer base.
