The existing water supply system of Urdaneta was originally constructed in 1959 by the defunct National Waterworks and Sewerage Authority otherwise known as (NAWASA) to serve the Poblacion area only. The original water supply system consisted of an elevated concrete storage tank, a well/pumping station located beside the municipal hall and about 5.3 kms of distribution pipelines.
In 1965, the distribution pipelines were extended to about 6 kms. more. The Urdaneta Water District (UWD) was created on February 20, 1976 by virtue of the angguniang Bayan Resolution No. 6, series of 1976.
Our water supply is available twenty four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week. He eight (8) pumping stations are strategically located to cater the water needs of the above service areas:
|Anonas (PS #7)||50 liters/second|
|Cayambanan (PS #5)||12 liters/second|
|Dilan (PS #3)||45 liters/second|
|Nancayasan (PS #4)||36 liters/second|
|Poblacion (PS #1)||15 liters/second|
|Vista Verde Royale Subd.(P #6)||4 liters/second|
|Woodside Village(PS#8)||50 liters/second|
Building on its humble beginning of a persevering and steady institutional growth, the Urdaneta City Water District (U.C.W.D.) to date has been in a busy process of transformation. Foreseeing a hard and grip prospect brought about by the economic, political uncertainties, it needs to be stronger, more dynamic institution for it to grow into the top tier of the water supply industry and mature into a comprehensive provider of piped water services. This transformation calls for UCWD’s market presence, expansion of its network facilities, the broadening of its corporate social responsibility and service offerings, the enhancement of its hard earned capital base, the improvement of its operating and delivery systems and the strengthening of its organization. With these new levels of growth attained, we say, URDANETA CITY WATER DISTRICT – a matter of CHOICE.
UCWD envisions itself to be one of the leading Water Districts in the region adopting a technically advanced, user-friendly technology to develop and sustain a cost effective system with adequate capacity to meet the growing needs of today’s consuming public for future generations.
To provide safe, potable water supply daily at an affordable cost to the people of Urdaneta City as a responsible and viable Government Owned and Controlled Corporation (GOCC) of God fearing, professional, technical and skilled personnel.
In order to achieve UCWD’s vision through the accomplishment of its mission, we uphold these corporate values across the organization:
