News and Updates

As of July 04, 2023: Metro Pacific Iloilo Water launches (TAPIC) Program. The program, ‘Tapnaon and Illegal Connection’ (TAPIC), is intended to combat illegal connections and reduce non-revenue water.

MPIW has taken a firm stance towards dealing with illegal water connections to protect the water supply of its customers and combat water loss. MPIW launches the TAPIC Program with the intent of eradicating illegal connections within its service areas.

TAPIC Program is part of MPIW’s intensified against non-revenue water (NRW). It encourages the public to report illegal water service connections of commercial and industrial establishments. For each confirmed illegal connection, the concerned citizen who made the report can earn as much as a P3,000 incentive.

NRW refers to the volume of treated water that is not delivered to customers, and its results from a variety of causes. including aged infrastructure, use of weak and substandard pipe materials, water theft, and limited capacity of water production and distribution facilities.

“At the moment, MPIW’s non-revenue water ratio is estimated at 48%. Since 2019, water losses have been reduced to an all time low from 45,000 (45 MLD) to 29,000 (29 MLD) cubic meters per day. The company envisions attaining an NRW ratio of 35% by 2024,” states Engr. Jedd Roxas, MPIW Operations Division Head.

“It’s crucial to protect our water resources and infrastructure, and we must do everything possible to prevent illegal water connections and reduce non-revenue water in Iloilo. Illegal connections to the water supply network could cause other uses to lose pressure or even worse could create a danger to public health,” adds Commercial Division Head John Canonero.

The anti-illegal water service program complements MPIW’s leak repair strategy. MPIW was able to fix more than 4,000 leaks since 2019. The company is also continuing its pipe replacement program to modernize and improve the pipe network in its service area.

“MPIW is leveraging technology by upscaling the usage of smart meters, which are affordable and durable. We will also be using ICT systems to monitor water usage in pipelines to avoid the deterioration of pipelines by ensuring effective pressure management, swift high-quality pipeline repairs, and asset renewals,” Roxas adds.

TAPIC will run for a month and will extend to three months, from July 01 to July 31. It will cover commercial and industrial establishments having any of the following illegalities: tampered meters, bypass connections, double tapping, and unregistered connections.
