Largest bulk water project in the country to address Davao’s growing water needs

Davao City witnessed the inauguration of the Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project (DCBWSP), the largest of its kind in the country boasting a 300 million liters per day (MLD) water production capacity. This transformative infrastructure project, the result of a long-standing partnership between the Davao City Water District (DCWD) and Apo Agua Infrastructura, Inc. (Apo Agua), ensures the enhanced supply of safe, reliable, and sustainable water to over one million Davaoen?os.

The inauguration, held at the Apo Agua Water Treatment Facility along the Davao-Bukidnon Highway, was attended by President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr.

Following a tour of the facility and unveiling of the ceremonial plaque, President Marcos delivered a message where he underscored the urgent need to address the country’s water situation.

As part of the partnership, the water produced by Apo Agua will be distributed to the DCWD’s Water Supply Systems in Calinan, Tugbok, Riverside, Dumoy (Panorama), Cabantian, and Panacan. DCWD continues to manage the distribution of water supply to Davaoen?os within its franchise area. The DCBWSP augments DCWD’s reliance on groundwater sources allowing the DCWD to recharge the majority of its wells.

Apo Agua’s state-of-the-art bulk water facility utilizes the Tamugan River as its water source and is designed using the water-energy nexus system – a first in Southeast Asia – which enables the facility to power itself through its Hydroelectric power plant and contribute surplus energy to the grid.

DCWD Chairman Eduardo A. Bangayan shared the history of the project, borne out of a need to keep up with and support the dynamic growth of Davao City.

The DCBWSP has been operational since December 1, 2023, and has since improved water supply and availability, especially in areas of Davao City’s second district experiencing intermittent water supply.
