But President Duterte warned that those who fail to comply with the President’s directive will be held accountable.
Presidential Spokesman and Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Salvador S. Panelo said, “The President is directing the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) to demand from the Manila Water Company, Inc., Maynilad Water Services, Inc. and other responsible offices to release water from Angat Dam by noon time today, March 15, good for 150 days, in order to supply the affected areas in Metro Manila and deliver, as well as distribute sufficient water to the residents thereof.”
But the recent update from the Manila Water, the customers in the east zone of Metro Manila have been experiencing improved water supply due to a water rationing scheme.
“As we continue the restoration of water supply within our service area, customers may experience water discoloration. This normally happens when pressure & supply adjustments are done.”
