Taguig, Manila Water complete ‘years of hard work’ on pipe project


New reservoir improves water services to 7 barangays

The Manila Water, in close partnership with the local government of Taguig, recently unveiled a 10-million liter capacity reservoir in Barangay Hagonoy that is seen to enhance water distribution services to at least seven barangays of the city, and ensuring increased water pressure on tap 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Both the Taguig City government and the Manila Water described the Capistrano Water System as a product of years of hard work and close collaboration, with a single objective of providing city resident  families the services they deserve, especially when it comes to water distribution.

Mayor Lani Cayetano said she was grateful to the water company for helping the city improve services it delivers to its people, especially involving something as basic as clean, running water.

“We are certain many families will be happy to learn that water services are improved. This is really a great feat for us and our partner in this endeavor, the Manila Water,” Mayor Lani said.

Manila Water East Zone Business Operations Group Director Ferdinand Dela Cruz is just as elated, saying, “It took us years to complete this project. We faced several challenges, but with the help of the City Hall administration,  led by Mayor Lani Cayetano, we are now able to fulfill our service obligations to the residents of Taguig City.”

The Capistrano Water System aims to ease the load carried by the Fort Bonifacio and Department of Science and Technology (DOST) pumping stations, and will primarily benefit seven barangays in the city: Bagong Tanyag, Bagumbayan, South Daang Hari, North Daang Hari, Central Bicutan, Lower Bicutan, and Upper Bicutan.

A 2.9-kilometer pipe was installed along East Service Taguig to Parañaque City, while a 5-kilometer pipeline was laid along C-6 road and Gen. Santos Avenue.

“We are very glad to work with Manila Water towards the completion of this project. With the new water system, around 15,000 water service connections in the city will be improved,” Mayor Lani said.

Taguig at Manila Water nagtulong para mapabuti ang serbisyo ng tubig

Daloy ng tubig sa pitong barangay lalakas

Tuluy-tuloy na malakas na pressure ng tubig ang araw-araw nang mararanasan ng  pitong barangay ng Taguig matapos makumpleto ng Manila Water sa pakikipagtulungan ng Taguig City government ang 10-million liter capacity reservoir nito sa Barangay Hagonoy.

Parehong tinawag ng Taguig City Government at ng Manila Water ang Capistrano Water System na bunga ng ilang taong pagsisikap at pagtutulungan na ang layunin ay ang bigyan ang bawat pamilyang residente ng Taguig ng serbisyong nararapat sa kanila.

Inihayag ni Mayor Lani Cayetano ang kanyang pasasalamat sa Manila Water sa tulong nito para mapabuti ang serbisyo at ang pagkakaroon ng malinis na tubig.

“Kami ay nakatitiyak na maraming pamilya ang matutuwa sa pinagbuting water service. Tunay po itong tagumpay para sa amin at sa Manila Water,” sabi ni MayorLani.

Ikinatuwa rin ni Manila Water East Zone Business Operations Group Director Ferdinand Dela Cruz ang proyekto, ““It took us years to complete this project. We faced several challenges, but with the help of the  City Hall administration,  led by Mayor Lani Cayetano, we are now able to fulfill our service obligations to the residents of Taguig City.”

Layon ng Capistrano Water System na bawasan ang load ng Fort Bonifacio at Department of Science and Technology (DOST) pumping stations na ang magbebenepisyo ay ang pitong barangay ng lungsod: Bagong Tanyag, Bagumbayan, South Daang Hari, North Daang Hari, Central Bicutan, Lower Bicutan at Upper Bicutan.

Naglagay ng tubo ng tubig sa kahabaan ng 2.9- kilometer East Service Road sa Taguig patungo sa Paranaque City, gayundin ng 5-kilometrong tubo sa kahabaan ng C-6 Road at sa Gen. Santos Avenue.

“Lubos po kaming natutuwa na makatrabaho ang Manila Water sa pagkumpleto ng proyekto. Dahil sa bagong water system ay bubuti ang nasa 15,000 water service connections,” pahayag pa ni Mayor Lani. ###
