MANILA (UPDATE) - Maynilad and Manila Water announced Friday several areas will continue to experience service interruptions and low water pressure.

Maynilad said water from dams were still turbid or cloudy because of suspended particulates, following the onslaught of typhoon Ulysses, the company said.

"We regret that we will not be able to normalize water supply for our affected customers until rains over the Ipo watershed stop and the turbidity level goes down to manageable levels," Maynilad said in its 8 a.m. advisory. 

On its Facebook page, Maynilad announced the following areas will still experience water service issues:

 

Typhoon Ulysses raised water levels above historical highs in Ipo Dam, causing turbidity.

For Manila Water, some of its serviced areas registered low water pressure due to power interruptions.

Manila Water areas still with low pressure were: Marikina; San Mateo, Rizal; Rodriguez, Rizal; and some portions of Pasig.

Areas with restored water are Taytay and Cainta in Rizal. 

Both Maynilad and Manila Water are deploying mobile water tankers and managing water pressure to ease the impact of reduced water production.
