On 28 June 2022, the MWSS Regulatory Office (RO) participated in the ceremonial launch of Maynilad Water Services, Inc.‘s “New Water” – the “first drinkable reused water” in the Philippines. The event was held at the Parañaque Water Reclamation Facility in Brgy. San Dionisio, Paranaque City.
Present at the ceremonial launch were MWSS RO Chief Regulator Atty. Patrick Lester N. Ty, Deputy Administrator for Administration and Legal Affairs Atty. Claudine B. Orocio-Isorena, Deputy Administrator for Customer Service Regulation Mr. Lee Robert M. Britanico; and Acting Deputy Administrator for Financial Regulation Mr. Christopher D. Chuegan.
The MWSS RO supports Maynilad’s “New Water” project – a groundbreaking solution to augmenting the limited supply of clean water in the Concession Area. The Office believes in the success of this project, and it is confident that this will signal the start of other breakthrough solutions to finding new raw water supply sources for drinking.
The MWSS RO assures Maynilad customers that the roll out of this project will be closely monitored, and that the guidelines and subsequent implementation relative to this new initiative will be scrutinized. The Office will make sure that the “New Water” that will be distributed through the customers’ taps will comply with the Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water set by the Department of Health.
