Manila Water starts bill waiver for customers
MANILA, Philippines — Customers of Manila Water Co. Inc. started receiving on April 1 their monthly bill that reflects the company’s one-time waiver of the minimum charge as well as a full waiver of all charges for any water consumed in March.
The minimum charge – representing the first 10 cubic meters – will be waived for all customers in the entire East Zone concession of Metro Manila as well as Rizal and Cavite.
Also, all customers whose premises are located in barangays Addition Hills, Barangka Drive, Plainview, Highway Hills, and Hulo in Mandaluyong City; Kapitolyo, Bagong Ilog, and Oranbo in Pasig City; Upper Bicutan in Taguig City; and Mambog in Binangonan, Rizal, will enjoy a full waiver of their monthly bill – meaning they will pay zero charges.
Some customers in 34 other barangays will likewise be covered by the full waiver, according to Manilawater.
“An initial estimate (of) around 152,000 households will be enjoying this full waiver of their March consumption which will be reflected in the bill they will receive in April,” Manila Water said.
“Please note though that full waiver does not apply to any previous unpaid amount of the customer,” the company added.
