Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System announced that the payment deadline for the inflated water bill during the months of April to June will be extended up until September 30, 2020.
According to them, they are extending the deadline as a consideration due to the pandemic.
“The board instructed the two concessionaires to provide grace period of at least the end of this third quarter to give relief for our consumers at the same time to balance the need of concessionaires to earn from their production,” said MWSS Administrator Emmanuel Salamat.
Maynilad and Manila Water should follow MWSS even if there are still no formal directions about the announcement.
“We are extending the deadline until October 15 before doing a physical disconnection.” Zmel Grabillo, Maynilad spokesperson quoted.
Whereas, Manila Water gives out a reminder that they will accept promissory notes if the consumer are not capable of paying their bills.
