The Dumaguete City Water District will celebrate its 33rd year anniversary on August 16 with the theme: “Strengthening Partnerships Toward Excellence in Service.” {{more}}

General Manager Esperato Dicen said this year’s theme is very fitting because the joint DCWD-LGU waste water treatment facility had already commenced operations. Early last year, the District and the city of Dumaguete pooled their resources amounting to P25 million to construct the said facility. “It is a rare partnership”, GM Dicen said, pertaining to the joint undertaking.

Also highlighting the anniversary celebration is the inauguration of the DCWD water testing laboratory. Mindful of its responsibility of providing safe and quality water to the concessionaires, the District embarked on establishing its own water testing laboratory which is capable of bacteriological, chemical and physical analysis of drinking water.

Various activities were already held starting early August for the purpose of creating awareness and involving the public sector in the celebration. These include the invitational sportsfest (basketball, volleyball, chess, billiards and tennis), inter-HS poster making and exhibit, free concert at Robinson’s Place, Thanksgiving Mass and tree planting activity at Lunga, Valencia, Negros Oriental.

Today the District serves close to 22,000 concessionaires in the city ranging from residential, commercial, government and educational institutions. It first came into existence by virtue of PD 198 and SP Resolution No. 96 and officially commenced operations as a body politic and a water district in August 16, 1977.
