Manila, one of the most heavily populated capital cities in the world (17 million residents), suffers from high levels of NRW. It has the oldest water supply system in Southeast Asia 130 years old. Before the start of the project, over 63% of the supplied water to the western zone of metropolitan Manila was considered NRW. Of this, 70-80% was estimated to be physical loss and the rest apparent loss.
One third of the 9 million residents in western Manila were not connected to the municipal water system, and over 1 million suffered from intermittent supply or very low pressure in the system.
Miya has opened offices inside Maynilad's premises and works jointly with Maynilad's NRW team in order to achieve the project's challenging objective
The Scope of the Project
Miya is providing:
- NRW management and advisory services
- Training and capacity building
- NRW management software and data services
- As part of the project Miya is implementing and deploying Netbase in Maynilad - a most advanced water distribution and NRW management software that enables MWSI managers to better manage the system.
- Miya has developed and implements a comprehensive training program on NRW for various levels of NRW practitioners and managers of MWSI.
Results until now (2007-2011)
- 66% NRW 1,530 MLD
- 54% of the system had intermittent supply
- 47% of the system had < 5m average pressure
- 700,000 customers
- 42.3% NRW 885 MLD
- < 30% intermittent supply
- < 15% < 5m pressure
- 1,005,350 customers
Key for success:
- Strong support from top management
- Sufficient funding and manpower
- World class advisors - and a young and motivated local team
- Holistic strategy - not only relying on pipe replacement
- Significant transfer of know-how and technology
- Best equipment and software systems
