Guinayangan Water District
(GWD) is a
Government Owned & Controlled Corporation created under Presidential
Decree 198 otherwise known as "The Provincial Water Utilities Act of
1973". Water, being a basic need and pre-requisite to the orderly
and well-balanced growth of urban areas is one of the rationales in
the creation of the said decree. Absence of an effective local water
utility is recognized as a deterrent to economic growth, a hazard to
public health, and an irritant to the spirit and well-being of the
The GWD was created
thru Sangguniang Bayan Resolution No. 87-59 which was passed by the
local government of Guinayangan, Quezon on July 22, 1987. This
resolution gave the Water District full control and administration
of the waterworks operations in the Municipality in accordance with
Presidential Decree (PD) No. 198, otherwise known as the “Local
Water Utilities Act of 1973” as amended by the PD Nos. 768 and 1479.
The same resolution effected the transfer of all existing water
supply facilities to the jurisdiction of GWD.
GWD was given a Conditional Certificate of Conformance (CCC) # 303
on August 18, 1987 by the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA)
which enabled it to operate under standard specifications. It
is presently categorized as a Small Water District - D.
Maulawin Spring Watershed, Bahochoc Springs, San Pedro Springs, Sta.
Cruz Springs and San
Antonio Spring serve as the main water sources of the GWD and play
important role in the continuous operation of the district. More
than 3,000 families along 26 barangays have been
served by the district through these spring sources. The local
government & various non-government organizations are always on the
GO to protect, maintain and improve these water sources for the next
generations to cherish.
Presently, members of the governing body of Guinayangan Water
District as well as its employees and other stakeholders are doing
their best to meet its mission of "providing
the residents of Guinayangan with quality water at reasonable cost
24 hours a day through the reliable service of qualified, satisfied,
law-abiding and God-fearing public servants".
