Manila Water Allocates P800 Million for Mandaluyong Sewer Expansion

Manila Water Co. Inc., owned by tycoon Enrique Razon, is investing P800 million in expanding its sewer services coverage in the East Zone. The company aims to complete this expansion by the fourth quarter of next year.

The project, known as Mandaluyong West Packages 3A and 3B, is part of the ongoing Mandaluyong West-San Juan and South Quezon City Sewerage System (MandaWest) project. Manila Water is funding the P306-million Package A and the P494-million Package B sewer pipe-laying projects, which are considered crucial sections of the MandaWest initiative.

In addition to enhancing sewer coverage in the East Zone, these two packages will also contribute to the restoration of Manila Bay, according to Manila Water. Jeric Sevilla, the corporate communications affairs group director of Manila Water, emphasized the importance of wastewater projects like MandaWest Packages 3A and 3B in achieving the company’s sustainability goals.

The East Zone concessionaire previously announced that the P4.2-billion MandaWest project Package 1 is set to be completed by the end of this year. The project includes a sewer treatment plant with a capacity of 60 million liters per day, expandable to 120 MLD, along with various pump stations and interceptor boxes.

Manila Water estimates that the MandaWest project will benefit over 700,000 residents of Mandaluyong, San Juan, and Quezon City by 2037.
