The Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) has called for the crafting of a masterplan for Manila Bay not only to clean up the polluted bay but also to ensure that sewerage and wastewater problems are addressed over the long term. The MWSS also directed its two concessionaires, Manila Water and Maynilad Water, to reengineer and fast-track their wastewater treatment projects to arrest the deterioration of the waters of Manila Bay. “We welcome all efforts of collaboration to clean up and rehabilitate Manila Bay. However, I strongly recommend that a masterplan, which should have been done long time ago, is needed right now to properly address the sewerage and waste problems in Mega Manila,” said MWSS administrator Reynaldo Velasco.
