For months, we wake up at 4:30 am, and there’s no water coming out of our faucet. We learned to store water and use it to prepare food and clean the mess in the kitchen. This has been our case for more than half a year already; no water supply from 4 pm to 5 am the next day. And though we’ve been used to this kind of system, it sometimes infuriates us. With seven members in our household – two of which are toddlers – water is vital.
Then we got an invite from Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) to tour Angat Dam, Ipo Dam and their La Mesa Water Treatment Plant 2 facility. The tour enlightened us of our situation.
