The water service provider, Maynilad, expressed its concern about the possible water shortage that Metro Manila residents could experience in the future.

Interviewed during Dos Por Dos on Wednesday, Manila Water Supply Operations Head Engr. Ronald Padua said that the water shortage may occur due to the country's dangerous heat index.

"Dahil sa condition ng ating weather sa ngayon, dahil mainit pa nga po at hindi pa rin umuulan doon sa ating water shed, nandoon pa rin po ang danger na posibleng mabawasan ang alokasyon sa Metro Manila," Padua noted.

Padua said Maynilad is still in good condition, and consumers are still receiving water services.


Currently, Padua clarified that there are no water interruptions due to the current extreme heat but due to the "normal maintenance" that the Maynilad conducts.

Padua, however, stressed that they should not be complacent, as rain in Metro Manila is not yet experienced.

As a response to the possibility of a water shortage, Padua said Maynilad is making strategies in case it occurs.

"Hindi pa rin tayo dapat magpaka-kampante kung ganito ang sitwasyon ngayon dahil hindi pa dumarating ang tag-ulan," said Padua.


"Patuloy ang pagtapos sa ating augmentation process, in-case magbawas ng alokasyon ay maging handa kami na maibigay ang minimum requirements ng ating customers," he added.

In the end, Padua reminded the consumers to practice responsible water usage.
