The Cabagan Water District (CWD) was established in 1981 by virtue of Presidential Decree 198, as amended. It is tasked to provide the highest degree of services and continued delivery of safe, potable and affordable water to the people of Cabagan and its neighboring towns. However, it took long years for the Cabagan Water District before its full operation because it does not have enough funds to support the needed logistics to start with. In order to address the problem, the CWD tried to get a loan from Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA) but was denied because LWUA believe that a water supply project in Cabagan was not financially feasible. However, after a thorough evaluation the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA) finally approved the loan.
In 1987, the water supply project started and Cabagan Water District became operational in January 1989. The Cabagan Water District was initially categorized a quasi public organization and in 1992 it became a Government Owned and Controlled Corporation (GOCC). Its operation is totally dependent from its own revenues and resources since it does not receive any subsidy or financial support from the national government.
At present the Cabagan Water District is manned by five-member Board of Directors, a Manager and Twenty-five (28) employees including Job Order Contract Workers. From the initial 300 service connections in 1989, it has increased to 3,788 as of December, 2014. It has 5 pumping stations serving seventeen (17) barangays, fifteen (15) in the Municipality of Cabagan and two (2) in the Municipality of San Pablo, a neighbor town of Cabagan. However, the Cabagan Water District plans to expand its service areas for the years to come if funds will allow.
At present Cabagan Water District is categorized as a small water district or classified as Category D compared to other water districts in the region which are quite bigger. It has yet to double its effort to be able to attain and sustain the purpose for its creation.
To provide highest degree of services and continued delivery of safe,
potable and affordable water supply to the people.
