MANILA, Philippines — Parts of Metro Manila and Cavite will experience water service interruptions daily starting this week until May 16, 2023, according to an advisory from Maynilad.

The water concessionaire said that the water interruptions are caused by low water production from the "combined effect of renewed spikes in the turbidity level of the raw water" in Laguna Lake. 

The interruptions are also due to a leak that formed on the "ultrafiltration backwash valve" of the Putatan Water Treatment Plant 2 following its exposure to highly turbid raw water. 

The water service interruptions will be felt in portions of Las Piñas City, Muntinlupa City, Parañaque City, Pasay City, Bacoor City, Cavite City, Imus City, Noveleta, Cavite and Rosario, Cavite.

Maynilad has advised its customers to store enough water when supply is available. 

“Upon resumption of water service, please let the water flow out briefly until it clears,” the advisory read.

This thread by Maynilad shows the full list of affected areas and the schedule of the water service disruptions:

Our customers in portions of Las Piñas City, Muntinlupa City, Paranaque City, Pasay City, Bacoor City, Cavite City, Imus City, Noveleta, Cavite and Rosario, Cavite will have water service interruptions daily from April 25, 2023 until May 16, 2023. <1/12> pic.twitter.com/DrE4tKn5RK
