Earlier, Maynilad announced that it had allocated P84.7 million to fully automate its 15 sewage treatment plants (STPs) and 13 wastewater pumping stations in Quezon City to improve operational efficiency and improve service delivery.
Last month, the firm set aside P293 million for a pipe-laying project in Cavite, which would connect about 23,000 new customers to their water distribution network.
For this year, the company earmarked P5 billion for “wastewater management projects that will increase sewerage coverage and maintain compliance with environmental standards.”
