Manila Water Can Withstand 7.2-Magnitude Quake, Interaksyon Says

Dec. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Manila Water Co. has completed the reinforcement of its main water-treatment plants so they can operate even after 7.2-magnitude earthquakes, Interaksyon.com reported, citing a statement from the Philippine utility.

The provider of water to half of Manila spent 110 million pesos ($2.5 million) for the seismic retrofitting of the Balara treatment plants, built in 1935 and 1968, to filter waters from the Angat, Ipo and La Mesa dams in the east zone, the news service said.
