MANILA, Philippines – West Zone water concessionaire Maynilad Water Services Inc. (Maynilad) yesterday announced that it is investing P500 million to lay nearly 33 kilometers of primary, secondary and tertiary pipes in Imus Cavite.
The pipes would be laid along Buhay na Tubig road (from Aguinaldo Highway to Barangay Pinagbuklod) and along Malagasang Road (from Patindig Araw to Dasmarinas boundary), both in Imus.
The pipe laying projects would start in August and are expected to be finished by early 2014.
With the additional pipes, Maynilad could connect 19, 000 households and establishments in Imus.
Maynilad said water consumers in Imus currently obtain water from deep wells and water delivery tanks.
“We are committed to providing full water service coverage in the West Zone.

This project will enable us to reach communities in the southernmost portion of our concession area,” said Maynilad president and CEO Ricky Vargas.
Maynilad is coordinating with the Imus Traffic Management Office (ITMO) and local government of Cavite for the implementation of measures to minimize traffic and public inconvenience.
Traffic aides would be deployed in work areas to assist the traffic flow. Work sites would be enclosed with board-up barricades, with appropriate lighting and warning signs.
In areas where primary pipes would be laid, the contractors of Maynilad would only be allowed to work from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.
These work sites would be temporarily restored after work hours to make the street passable during the day.
Maynilad services the cities of Manila (all but portions of San Andres and Sta. Ana), Quezon City (west of San Juan River, West Avenue, EDSA, Congressional, Mindanao Avenue, the northern part starting from the districts of the Holy Spirit and Batasan Hills), Makati (west of South Super Highway), Caloocan, Pasay, Parañaque, Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Valenzuela, Navotas and Malabon, all in Metro Manila; the cities of Cavite, Bacoor and Imus, and the towns of Kawit, Noveleta and Rosario, all in Cavite province.
