Maynilad ‘obligated’ to cut water service

This is in reference to the editorial titled “Water warning” (4/13/14), which associated the Holy Week water service interruption of Maynilad with the dry season and the decreasing water level in Angat Dam.

Water concessionaires collecting in advance

By

It is not only Meralco that is overcharging its customers.

Water consumers as ‘contractual’ victims

Maynilad and Manila Water came up with full-page ads justifying the various impositions on their water bills to consumers. Their explanations do not hold water.

Flooded with water issues

By

I want to continue on the water case because it’s much more than an issue of whether the concessionaires should be given revenue increases, and how much, or not at all.

Here’s why we are where we are

By

If one recalls correctly, at the time the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System called for bids from the private sector to run its water (and almost nonexistent) sewerage operations, it was charging almost P11 per cubic meter of water, it was suffering tremendous nonrevenue water losses, water service was sporadic and of limited reach, and the water itself was of doubtful potability.

Water woes

By

One of the first things we had to face after my wife and I decided in 1973 to live with her grandaunt, music professor Jovita Fuentes, inside the University of the Philippines campus, was the water problem. Built on the gentle slope of a hill at the edge of the sprawling campus, the house of the maestra was one of the pioneer homes in UP Diliman. Its high elevation gave us a beautiful view of the neighborhood, but put us at a disadvantage in the community’s water distribution system.

Maynilad, Manila Water, follow Meralco’s example

By

Any way you look at it, the increases in water rates by the two water concessionaires, Maynilad and Manila Water, are too much and unconscionable. Imagine, Maynilad is increasing its rates by P8.25 per cubic meter, and Manila Water slightly lower. To the average household, that would be an increase of P250 a month. That’s highway robbery! Many poor families earn less or only slightly more than that.

‘Overcharge’ due to plumbing defects, Maynilad hints

This is in reference to Fernando S. Menina’s letter titled “Maynilad’s overcharge defies common sense” (Inquirer, 4/11/13). Menina appealed for Maynilad to immediately address his complaint regarding his water bill.

Maynilad’s overcharge defies common sense

I read Bienvenido Atienza’s plaint about Maynilad’s service (“Common sense, please,” Inquirer, 3/2/12). I too have experienced the problem complained of. And I thought that if it has become a “trend,” Maynilad owes it to affected consumers to immediately attend to such complaints.

‘Fair and consistent practice’—Maynilad

This is in response to Neal H. Cruz’s column titled “Water, power firms overcharging the public” (Inquirer, 2/25/13). From 2007 to 2012, Maynilad Water Services Inc. (Maynilad) spent P37.82 billion to improve and expand water services in our concession area. This enabled us to recover and sell more water to more customers, and to earn a total net income of P23.51 billion during the period.

Water, power firms overcharging the public

By

As we celebrate the 27th anniversary of the 1986 People Power Revolution that freed us from the shackles of a dictatorship, perhaps we should also start another revolt to free us from the shackles of greedy private corporations. I am referring to the utility companies, such as water, power, communications and toll road operators, which [...]

Unreasonable water service reconnection fee

We are in support of the MWSS Development Program, especially here in Cavite City. We also appreciate the superb service it is giving our community.
