Brief History

In 1973, Davao City Water District (DCWD) was created and began serving Davao City making it one of the first water districts to operate in the country by virtue of Presidential Decree 198 or the Provincial Water Utilities Act of 1973. Operating as a quasi-public corporation or a semi-government status, DCWD implemented its projects by stages.

From 1975 to 1979, the Phase I Project was undertaken. Several facilities were constructed including production wells, sump and reservoir, which form part of DCWD’s biggest water supply system today – Dumoy. Sometime in 1986 and 1988, the Phase II Project (Stages I and II) was carried out. After the completion of said stages, more production wells, booster pumps, and transmission and distribution lines were in place, including one additional sump and the Ma-a tunnel.

In 1992, the Supreme Court declared with finality that all water districts in the country are government-owned and controlled corporations (GOCCs). Despite this ruling, DCWD forged ahead with its plans to further improve the city’s water system. Thus, production wells, reservoirs, and transmission and distribution lines, altogether forming a water supply system, multiplied and provided water service to over 100,000 service connections. This earned DCWD the coveted “Most Outstanding Water District” award for the Very Large Category for two consecutive years, 1995 and 1996. The same feat was repeated in 2001 and 2002 after the partial completion of the Phase III Project, which was started in 2000.

Today, DCWD continuously upgrades and finds resources, whether underground or surface water, to ensure that abundant and only quality water supply will flow out of the taps of Davao City for many more years ahead.
