MANILA, Philippines - Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) said it awarded the construction of its P1 billion sewage treatment plant in Cupang, Muntinlupa City to the J.E. Manalo-Degremont Consortium.

J.E. Manalo will provide the civil works for the plant, while international water technology provider Degremont will provide the technology for the facility.

The Cupang sewage treatment plant is expected to provide wastewater services for over 58,000 households from Barangays Alabang, Bayanan, Buli, Cupang, Putatan and Sucat in Muntinlupa City.

The facility is designed to treat up to 46 million liters of wastewater per day, and will help clear the Laguna Lake.

This is one of six wastewater facilities funded by Maynilad’s $137.5-million loan from the World Bank for the development and improvement of wastewater services in the West Zone.

The loan will also fund the construction of new STPs in Pasay and Valenzuela, construction of a South Septage Treatment Plant, rehabilitation of the Alabang STP (completed in 2013), and the recently inaugurated Talayan STP.
