MNWD’s 2021 Feats amid Economic Challenges

For Metropolitan Naga Water District (MNWD), 2021 was a year of change, setbacks, and recovery. There were countless impediments along the way, but in each time, we come back stronger than before. As we face yet another year, let us take a quick look back at how much MNWD have come to accomplish.

MNWD actively proves its “Passion for Excellence” mantra with several wins and awards. On July 2021, the District was given a Community Participation Special Citation Award by Department of Environment and Natural Resources at their Climate and Disaster Resiliency Recognition Awards called “Mga Kwentong KLIMA-likasan Tungkol sa Katatagan”. During the World Water Day 2021 Photo Contest, MNWD won 3rd Place with an entry showing the value of water in the community. Meanwhile, at the 42nd PAWD National Convention, the District won 2nd Place in the Newsletter Category. Topping last year’s highlights is when MNWD bagged its 3rd Huwarang Lingkod-Tubig Award, featuring sustainable projects and advocacies such as the protection of the Mount Isarog Natural Park (MINP) utilizing the help of the community.

More than the aforementioned accolades, the District had also spent most of the year completing several projects in different areas. MNWD believes that proper care and attention to the water line system is key to a consistently improved service. The District was able to accomplish three (3) distribution lines located in Canaman and Magarao, benefiting more than 400 households; two (2) transmission lines at Carolina and Magarao, and a well drilling project at Canaman and Pacol, Naga City for balancing and augmentation of water pressure in the system. Further, MNWD had undergone renovation of its office interiors, particularly in its Customer Service Division and Water Distribution and Restoration Division offices and customer’s lobby in order to cater to more consumers and their water-related concerns.

With the continuous consumer increase, from 54,734 to 55, 822 service connections since 2020, the District continues on with its duty providing not only water supply, but also sanitation. MNWD’s Septage Management Program begun its operations early this year and is now offering desludging services to a number of households.

2022 opens a new chapter for growth. There will definitely be new obstacles to conquer and more projects to accomplish, yet the District always puts its best foot forward when threading the road towards excellence. (YMMSavilla)
