Iriga City Water District History

On April 24, 1979, the National Waterworks & Sewerage System Authority turned over to the Iriga City Government the Iriga Waterworks system. On June 5, 1979, the Sangguniang Panglunsod issued Resolution No. 50. On September 24, 1979, the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA) issued the Certificate of Conformance No. 091 for ICWD. In 2004, the district served fifteen (15) Barangays or 42% of the total 36 barangays of Iriga, and four (4) in Nabua, serving more than 7,100 concessionaires.

On June 2, 2005 , six (6) barangays were added for a total of 21 or 58% of the barangays in Iriga, plus, several barangays in Nabua, Camarines Sur, within the coverage area of the Nabua Water District. The supply of water by ICWD to NaWD is covered by a Memorandum of Agreement. The supply to NaWD is mainly because of poor quality of water in Nabua. As of April 2012, the ICWD's service connection has significantly increased to 11,339 households or, an increase of 63% reckoned from year 2007, or a difference of 4,239 concessionaires, or equivalent to an increase of 60%, covering a population of 68,635 of the approximately 100,000 population of the City of Iriga. Iriga City Water District now serve a total of 25 out of the 36 barangays or 69%. This is a difference of four barangays in a span of 5 years. The ICWD employs Forty Eight (48) Permanent Employees including the GM and three (3) division managers with 36 contractuals. With the present source of three (3) springs, namely, Butawan, Masoso and Guilid, the district now draws a combined capacity of 330,000 from the previous 266,000 cubic meters of water per month to the benefit of the residents of both Iriga and Nabua. Barangays presently being served are the following: San Agustin, San Isidro, San Nicolas, San Roque, San Francisco, San Miguel, San Jose, Sto. Domingo, San Juan, Sta. Cruz Sur, San Vicente Sur, Francia, La Purisima, Perpetual Help, Sta. Teresita and seven (7) barangays from Nabua, Camarines Sur. 

After the turn-over of the project on June 2, 2005, the following barangays are included: Sto. Niño, San Antonio, La Trinidad, La Medalla, Salvacion, La Anunciacion, Sta. Maria, San Andres, Sta. Elena-a portion is now being served beginning in 2010.

It was in 2010 that barangay Sta. Maria became an addition to the areas served with clean and potable drinking water and lately, is barangay San Andres. 

On March 19, 2003 a 75 KVA generating set for the Butawan Pumping Station was purchased to ensure continuous flow of water during power failures.

On May 1, 2003, the ICWD employed the use of Meter Read & Bill System (MRBS) for the accurate reading of water consumption.

The year 2005 is a significant year for ICWD as it added new facilities that included a 600 cubic meter volume capacity of ground reservoir in a lot measuring 793 sq.m. complemented by a booster pump located in an area of 342 sq.m. in Inorogan, Sto. Domingo, an 80 cu.m elevated steel tank in Sto. Niño and another 80 cu.m capacity of ground reservoir in Barangay Perpetual Help in a lot area of 291.3 sq.m. in addition to the existing submersible pumps there and in Sta. Teresita. Additional pumping station was added in Masoso with a capacity of 28 lps while two (2) were added in Guilid springs with a capacity of 41 Liters Per Second (lps) each. Another Booster Pump will be built in La Trinidad in a lot measuring 2,434 sq.m. at the same time to be developed into other amenities like a motor pool, staff house and extension office to serve the River Unit Barangays.

To serve its clientele to the fullest, ICWD has four tricycles, nine motorcycles and four (4) vehicles for its daily operation and business transactions.

As a commitment to the environment, the ICWD ventured to initially develop a fifty (50) hectare watershed area at the upland portion of Barangay Sta. Elena (sitio naparil). It is a project that will serve as ICWD's legacy to the people of Iriga and its neighboring towns.
