MANILA, Philippines — Higit pang lilinis ang suplay na tubig ng West Zone concessionaire Maynilad­ Water Services, Inc. (May­nilad) sa milyong kostumer nito sa Metro Manila at karatig lalawigan.

Ito ay makaraang buksan ang bagong expan­ded Water Laboratory, na sumusuri sa kalidad ng water supply at wastewater effluents sa kanilang mga concession area.

Ang expanded water lab ay matatagpuan sa loob ng La Mesa Compound sa Quezon City,  ang bagong Water Lab na ki­naroroonan ng Maynilad’s state-of-the-art analytical instruments na gamit sa pag-aaral ng compounds­ sa water samples mula sa 1,100 sampling points na nakakalat sa West concession area.

Ang pasilidad ay pinon­dohan ng P70-milyon para matiyak na ang naisusuplay na tubig ay dumaraan sa mataas na pagkasuri­ at comliant ng quality pa­ra­­meters na naitakda ng Department of Health’s updated Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water.

Ang pasilidad ay sumusuri rin sa effluents para sa wastewater treatment facilities ng kompanya para matiyak na naaayon­ ito sa Ambient­ Water and General Effluent Standards of 2016 na naitakda ng Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

“Having the Water Lab saved us money on water quality analyses, and also strengthened the internal capability of Maynilad to conduct water testing­ and treatment. This is important because we want to assure our customers that the water and wastewater produced by our treatment facilities pass the government’s strict standards,” pahayag ni Maynilad Pre­sident and CEO Ramoncito S. Fernandez.
