On 28 July 2022, the MWSS Regulatory Office (RO) held the inauguration of its Water Meter Test Bench Laboratory – the first state of the art government facility of its kind in the Philippines. The event was part of the Office’s 25th Anniversary celebration.
Officials and executives from partner agencies—including the MWSS Board of Trustees, Administrator of the MWSS Corporate Office, President & CEO of Maynilad, President & CEO of Manila Water, and members of the East Asia Solutions Technologies Corporation—graced the occasion.
The MWSS RO Water Meter Test Bench uses a high accuracy technology by virtue of a Coriolis flow meter, and can test meters ranging from 15 to 40 millimeters in diameter. It will soon aid the office in certifying the quality and accuracy of Manila Water and Maynilad’s water meters prior to installation; ensuring that the Concessionaires’ water meters are providing precise measurements and recording of the customers’ water consumption; and independently investigating and validating concerns regarding customers’ water meters. The laboratory will also be a training facility for professionals in meter testing.
