MANILA, Philippines — Pangilinan-led Maynilad Water Services Inc. has received an international award for its Putatan treatment plant.

The west zone concessionaire said its Putatan Water Treatment Plant 2 was conferred an award of distinction under the Water Project of the Year category of the Global Water Awards 2020.

The Global Water Awards recognize the most important achievements in the international water industry. The Putatan plant is the lone awardee from the Philippines.

Maynilad said the Putatan plant, its second facility to tap Laguna Lake as a raw water source, gained recognition for its crucial role in addressing water security in Metro Manila.

The facility was built to help moderate over-dependence on Angat Dam, as well as expand water service to Maynilad customers in the southern part of its concession area.

With a production capacity of 150 million liters per day, Putatan 2 is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies that enable it to produce potable water despite the variability of the lake water’s quality.

Located in Muntinlupa, the facility is the largest membrane-based water treatment plant in the Philippines and is also the first of its kind in the country to use large-scale microfiltration and reverse osmosis.

Organized by the Global Water Intelligence, the Global Water Awards reward initiatives in the water, wastewater and desalination sectors that are moving the industry forward through improved operating performance, innovative technology adoption and sustainable financial models.

Maynilad is the largest private water concessionaire in the country in terms of customer base. It serves the areas of Caloocan, Pasay, Parañaque, Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Valenzuela, Navotas, Malabon, and certain portions of Manila, Quezon City, Makati and Cavite.
