THE MMWD BACKGROUND AND HISTORY
The Metro Midsayap Water District (MMWD) was formed on November 7, 1980 and was issued its Conditional Certificate of Conformance (CCC) No. 174 on December 16, 1981 by the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA).
The Midsayap Water District’s organization was approved by the Sangguniang Bayan of Midsayap thru PD No. 198 which turned-over all existing facilities of the former NAWASA to the District.
This includes a 100 feet or 30 Cu. M. concrete reservoir, transmission lines (ACP, CI and GI Pipes), well sources and pump stations at Dilangalen, Poblacion 1 (revived) and crossing, Poblacion 8 (abandoned) in Midsayap, North Cotabato.
The District started serving thirty (30) concessionaires which eventually increased to three hundred (300), one thousand two hundred (1,200) as of September 2000. Midsayap Water District has annexed Libungan in 1990, thus, it is currently named Metro Midsayap Water District (MMWD).
On expansions and upgrading, MMWD has materialized a number of plans and targets from its own funds and from the CDF funds of Congressman Anthony P. Dequiña of the 1st District of Cotabato. MMWD is also a beneficiary of LWUA’s Lingap sa Mahihirap Project for an additional well source.
At present, MMWD is servinga 3,202 active service connections in Midsayap and 1,064 in Libungan with a total of 4,266 concessionaires served as of June 2014.
Moreover, thru the initiative of our energetic General Manager Carol S. Tolentino, CPA, MMPA, MMWD has been able to achieve greater achievements and accomplishments, with the untiring support of the MMWD Admin, Finance and Commercial Section & Production and Engineering Section personnel who are active and updated in doing their designated tasks, thus, all of these were realized:
- Abaga Pump Station 1,2,3 4. Kiwanan Pump Station
- Libungan Pump Station 1,2,3,4,5,6 5. Lower Katingawan Pump Station
- Dilangalen Pump Station 6. Silver Homes Pump Station
For all these, we still hope and envision to extend the abundant supply of safe and potable water to the farthest and smallest barangays in Midsayap and Libungan, both in North Cotabato, to market additional concessionaires for MMWD. As a Category C Water District, we dream to become bigger. This means bigger hopes and bigger works, bigger pay (salary) with bigger responsibility and a much better service to every home. These are our common goals which will be realized in performing our jobs well, in maintaining cooperation with each other and in facing another milestone of our challenges to become better, progressive and a provider of abundant safe and potable water in this community.
