Boracay Water, a unit of Manila Water Co. Inc., said Friday its system loss reached an all-time low of 14 percent in 2012.
Boracay Water said in a statement the system loss or level of non-revenue water went down by nine percentage points from the previous year’s 23 percent.
Water recovered from the low levels of non-revenue water was re-distributed and used to augment the water supply for the company’s growing customer base without the need to develop new water sources.
“Our serious and well-planned efforts to bring down our system loss proved to be successful,” said Boracay Water chief operating officer and general manager Ben Mañosca.
Boracay Water’s intensified efforts of arresting the problems on illegal connections and pilferages also contributed in bringing down its non-revenue water level.
Boracay Water was formed in partnership with the Tourism Infrastructure Enterprise Zone Authority to serve the water demands and address the wastewater needs of the country’s premiere tourist destination.
