MWC statement: Boracay Water system loss at its lowest
Boracay Water, operator of water and used water services in the Island of Boracay, Malay, Aklan, has announced that this year’s first quarter level of non-revenue water or system loss is down at 12.78% from 16.76% the same time in 2013.
According to Ben Manosca, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer of Boracay Water, the company’s system loss fell to its lowest level last January with 12.41%. “Implementation of extensive leak detection programs and repair activities were among the key factors contributing to this improvement” said Manosca.
“With this, more water will be brought to the continuously growing 5,762 residential and commercial service connections of the company”, he adds.
Boracay Water was formed in 2009 through a joint venture agreement with Manila Water, the East Zone water concessionaire, and the Tourism Infrastructure Authority and Enterprise Zone Authority or TIEZA (formerly known as Philippine Tourism Authority) to operate the water and wastewater services in the Island of Boracay, Malay, Aklan, particularly in its three barangays — Manoc-Manoc, Balabag, and Yapak.
