MANILA, Philippines —  Maynilad Water Services Incorporated (Maynilad) will defer its scheduled pipe realignment activity along Sobriedad Street corner Cristobal Street in Manila that was initially set for October 25 to 28.

The new time frame for the pipe realignment activity is from October 29 to November 1.

Maynilad said the pipe realignment activity is in preparation for the flood control project of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

The water concessionaire said that the setting of new schedule was prompted by requests from residents in areas in Manila and Cavite that will be affected by the water service interruption as a result of the said activity.

Affected residents have requested that they be given more time to store enough water and prepare for the service interruption.

“Kami ay nakipag-ugnayan sa DPWH at MWSS ukol sa nasabing mga request, at napagdesisyunan na iurong ng bahagya ang implementasyon nito,” Maynilad said.

Maynilad added that except for the schedule, affected areas of the water service interruption remain the same.
