MANILA, Philippines — Manila Water has set the ball rolling for the construction of the Hinulugang Taktak Sewage Treatment Plant in Antipolo City.

The water firm has signed a usufruct agreement with the Antipolo  local government to start the construction of the sewage facility which is part of Manila Water’s mission to complete wastewater services coverage in Metro Manila’s East Zone.

The Hinulugang Taktak Sewerage System Project will involve the construction of a 16-million liter per day (MLD) plant and laying of approximately six kilometers of sewer network lines. The sewerage system will help ensure that wastewater from the community is cleaned before discharge to the Hinulugang Taktak Falls. The commencement of the construction will also help jumpstart local economy as infrastructure projects resume.

Once completed, the sewerage services in the area will help restore Hinulugang Taktak Falls to its old glory, Manila Water said.

The Hinulugang Taktak Sewage Treatment Plant is the fifth, and largest, wastewater treatment facility that Manila Water has built within the province of Rizal. This is in addition to the existing 41 wastewater treatment facilities that Manila Water has built and is now operating across the East Zone. Once completed, the total wastewater treatment capacity will be increased to 426 MLD.

Currently in pre-construction stages and are expected to commence construction soon are five other significant wastewater treatment infrastructure projects within Manila Water’s concession area.
