The biggest water treatment plant in the world gets new name, after a $1.4 billion upgrade

A water treatment facility in the Philippines was given a new name on Tuesday, following a $6.5 billion upgrade.

The Philippines Water Authority announced the change on its website, saying the $1,400-million, 20-year project will create more than 4,000 new jobs, as well as expand its water supply and improve its efficiency.

The facility is one of five plants operated by the Philippine Environmental Management Agency.

It provides wastewater treatment for a total of 2,100 sites across the country, which have been served by two water treatment plants.
