Laguna Water now provides desludging services
Laguna Water, a subsidiary of Manila Water Company Inc., said it recently expanded its services to include desludging or used water siphoning services for its customers.
The company said that since the desludging services began in the third quarter of this year, more than 240 households have already been visited and inspected.
A total of 40 customers have then been provided with the service, with an accumulated 77 cubic meters of septage collected, which was treated at Laguna Technopark Inc. Sewage and Septage Treatment Plant (LTI SSTP).
Laguna Water said around 100,000 households or 500,000 residents in Binan, Sta. Rosa and Cabuyao are set to benefit from the implementation of the said sanitation efforts.
Septage or used water collected from septic tanks will be collected and hauled by Laguna Water’s desludging trucks to the company’s sewage and septage treatment plant where it will undergo stringent treatment processes to comply with the strict pollution standards of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
Treated used water or effluent must be Class C Standard to ensure that used water discharged to natural bodies of water is safe for aquatic life.
Laguna Water is a public private partnership between Manila Water Philippine Ventures and the Provincial Government of Laguna.
