MAYNILAD’S “NEW WATER” PASSES POTABILITY TEST. The “New Water” that Maynilad produces using raw water supply from its Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in Paranaque City has been issued a Certificate of Potability by the Paranaque City Health Office. The photo shows Department of Health (DOH)-certified water samplers collecting samples of “New Water” from the company’s Modular Treatment Plant for testing, in the presence of representatives from the Paranaque City Health Office.

The collected samples were tested by DOH-accredited laboratories to ensure that the water is safe to drink. The issuance of a Certificate of Potability proves that “New Water” meets the Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water.

“New Water” is drinkable water supply that is sourced from the used water generated by households.

Maynilad now produces “New Water” by collecting the treated used water discharged by its Paranaque Water Reclamation Facility and putting it through a Modular Treatment Plant for a more rigorous purification process to make it potable.

Maynilad has been looking into potable water reuse since 2019. The initiative is in line with the company’s bid to expand its alternative raw water source options so it can better augment supply during times of shortage.
