MVP's Maynilad to spend P1.1 billion for Manila Bay rehab

Now for some Good News!, for the Philippine environment.
Manuel Pangilinan’s Maynilad Water Services Inc. responsible for the West zone in Metro Manila’s water has earmarked P1.1 billion over the next three years to help rehabilitate the world famous Manila Bay.

As per the statement of Maynilad, the amount earnmarked would be used to rehabilitate five esteros in Manila, which are part of the waterways that drain out to Manila Bay.

The company implemented an Adopt an Estero initiative which will cover Estero dela Reina, Estero de Sunog Apog, Estero de Magdalena, Estero de Concordia and Estero de San Antonio Abad.
Maynilad will lay around 10 kilometers of sewer lines to catch wastewater flow from Maynilad customers along creeks that cannot be served by individual sewer connections.
The collected wastewater will then be diverted to the nearest sewer network of Maynilad. The project is expected to benefit some 62,000 people.

“Even as we install the sewer lines that will prevent wastewater from flowing directly to esteros, we seek the help of all local government units to ensure that solid waste does not pollute these same esteros that we are trying to clean. This would render our investment in the wastewater infrastructure useless,” Maynilad president and chief executive officer Ramoncito Fernandez said.
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Roy Cimatu has reported significant improvements in the water quality of the major outfalls directly raining into Manila Bay a year after the pollution-challenged water body started undergoing rehabilitation.
