Developing PUPs for Philippine Water Districts

ENGR ARMANDO PAREDES, General Manager of Metro Cebu WD (MCWD), gave examples of PUPs being developed by MCWD with three local government units (LGUs) in Cebu:  (a)  Danao City;  (b) Compostela municipality;  and (c) Liloan.  Of the three, the MCWD-Danao City PUP was in the most advanced stage of negotiations. LGU officials who operate Danao city’s water system requested for technical assistance from MCWD on how to account for water since many households do not have meters. Danao City indicated it would like to sell water to MCWD from the Danao river. MCWD had asked the LGU to verify the sustainability of the volume of water from the river. [A Memorandum of Understanding had been signed by the two parties in March 2009.]
