Maynilad adds new pumping station

West Zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) is now building a R428-million supplementary pumping station inside La Mesa Compound in Quezon City to improve its water pressure as well as expand its coverage in Quezon City and Caloocan.

The company presently has 27 pumping stations located in strategic locations throughout its West concession area, up from only seven operational pumping stations in 2006 before the company was re-privatized.

According to Maynilad, the North A Pumping Station Annex will serve more than 84,000 households, of which 10,000 will be new customers.

With this new facility, existing Maynilad customers within certain areas will experience an increase in water pressure from 7 pounds per square inch (psi) to 16 psi.

The North A Pumping Station Annex will also enable Maynilad to bring potable surface water to households that still rely on deep wells, thus improving water quality and availability for the residents.
