MANILA - The infrastructure company of ports magnate Enrique Razon said on Monday it aims to boost Manila Water's supply as early as 2021 with an alternative water source in Brgy. Wawa, Rodriguez, Rizal.
Razon's Prime Infra and the Ayala-owned Manila Water said they presented today the results of their joint technical study on the Wawa supply project to Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) Administrator Reynaldo Velasco.
Prime Infra said the project could deliver over 500 million liters per day (mld) of water once finished, with 80 mld deliverable as early as 2021.
Guillaume Lucci, Prime Infra president, said they hope to break ground by 2020 so that they can deliver water partially the following year.
"At its full capacity, the project will boost Manila Water’s current available water supply by about 30 percent," Lucci said.
