MANILA - Manila Water announced that it has completed its pilot project in Yangon City in Myanmar.

According to the company, the project, which was done in partnership with Mitsubishi Corporation and Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC), significantly reduced the volume of water lost due to leaks and illegal connections. 

Manila Water said system loss in the project areas dropped from more than 54 percent to just 14 percent. 

The project was part of the Memorandum of Understanding signed by Manila Water and Mitsubishi Corporation together with YCDC in 2014 to address the needs of the city's water system, according to Manila Water Asia Pacific President & CEO Virgilio C. Rivera Jr.

The company said that besides Myanmar, it has also presence in Vietnam and Indonesia through its subsidiary Manila Water Asia Pacific.
