Manila Water Co. Inc. signed an agreement with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the city government of Antipolo City last week for the construction of the Hinulugang Taktak sewage treatment plant (STP).
The facility will be comprised of a 16-million liter per day (MLD) STP. It involves laying of approximately 6 kilometers of sewer network lines to ensure wastewater from the community is cleaned before discharge to the Hinulugang Taktak falls.
Once completed, the total wastewater treatment capacity of Manila Water will be increased to 426 MLD.
The Hinulugang Taktak STP is the fifth and largest wastewater treatment facility that Manila Water has built in Rizal, in addition to the existing 41 wastewater treatment facilities that the company has built across the east zone.
