Manila Water sets P1.4 B upgrade of Balara plant

MANILA, Philippines — Ayala-led and east zone concessionaire Manila Water Co. Inc. is allocating P1.4 billion for the improvement of its Balara treatment facilities to ensure stable and reliable water supply in the area.

The budget will cover a series of projects for the water treatment and distribution structures in Balara in Quezon City.

The planned retrofitting aims to ensure continuous operation in the event of a possible 7.2 magnitude earthquake from the West Valley fault.

It also targets to recover 20 million liters per day of water loss and make operation more sustainable.

“The Balara treatment facilities are some of the oldest in Asia and we will continue to extend its serviceability,” said Maidy Lynn Quinto, Manila Water corporate project management director.

Manila Water will also improve its auxiliary structures including the Balara pump station where new variable frequency drives are being installed to ensure stable water pressure for pipes conveying water to Katipunan and Tandang Sora in Quezon City.

Minimizing pressure surges will also reduce incidents of pipe breakages leading to service interruption.
