Manila Water mulls investing P1.9 billion for the construction of a sewer network in Taguig, Makati and nearby cities.
The east zone water concessionaire said the construction of the project is slated between 2014 to 2016. It will adopt a separate system approach that will collect domestic wastewater through dedicated sewer network.
The project called the Taguig North Sewer Network 3 Project will be the first major sewer network project by Manila Water since implementing its Wastewater Master Plan.
The sewer network project is said to treat up to 75 million liters of wastewater per day which could cater to the treatment requirements of half a million residents in cities of Taguig, Makati and nearby areas.
Abelardo Basilio of the Manila Water Strategic Asset Management Group said the project will be the first time for the company to use a new technology for sewer network – a trenchless methodology in pipe laying to which would reduce the traffic impact and inconvenience to commuters. He also said that the project would allow them to expand their service coverage in its east zone concession area.
