As part of its commitment to immediately respond to disasters, Manila Water Foundation (MWF) deployed a Mobile Treatment Plant (MTP) to Boracay Island Water to provide potable water for calamity-stricken communities in Aklan.
Under its Agapay Para Sa Barangay program, MWF with Power 4 All also trained the participants from Manila Water Business Continuity Team, Clark Water, Laguna Water, Boracay Island Water, and Cebu Water on how to operate a Mobile Treatment Plant (MTP), a transportable water filtration system that converts all types of water to its potable state.
The MTP operation is a critical procedure to ensure that clean drinking water will be delivered to the affected communities and evacuation areas where waterborne diseases due to unsafe water sources are common. The MTP and training will allow MWF to secure the need for clean drinking water during disasters and when prolonged support is necessary.
The acquisition of the MTP was made possible through a Php10 million donation of Ayala Corporation. The MTP supplied by Power 4 All is capable of treating raw water from various sources including rivers, lakes, wells and seawater and produce potable water which meets the Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water.
