Philippines' Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) lays out US$1.5 Billion Investment Program at SIWW 2012

SINGAPORE, July 3, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - The Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS), the Philippines' leading water authority, has set afloat a series of projects to establish a Water Security Legacy (WSL) for the 15 million residents of Metro Manila.

Foremost among the projects is the identification of another water source to supplement the increasing demand for the utility's consumers. Currently under review by the World Bank are several potential dam sites with potential supply of 550 to 1,900 million litres per day (MLD) of water. Labeled the Centennial Dam, the project is expected to supplement the supply from Angat Dam, the sole source of water for the metropolis.

Also under the agenda is MWSS' US$14.3 Million project funded by Manila Water and Maynilad that will divert the Sumag River in Quezon to Umiray Tunnel to augment the water supply in Angat Dam. In addition, the agency will rehabilitate the Angat-Umiray transbasin tunnel to maximize the inflow of water from Umiray River.
