(Maynilad) engaged in a water operator partnership (WOP) with Cagayan do Oro Water District (COWD) to develop the capacity of COWD in the creation of a hydraulic model, the design of a pressure management program, and an introduction to the development of a Geographic Information System (GIS). Over the 12-month partnership, Maynilad guided COWD in developing a calibrated hydraulic model for a pilot site, Barangay Camaman-an, allowing it to better understand the behavior of the water system in the area, implement pressure management techniques thereby optimizing the current network and operations, and provide better water services to customers. Although a 24/7 water supply was not achieved in Barangay Camaman-an, there was an increase in the number of supply hours from four (4) to eight (8) hours a day. Moreover, armed with a better understanding of the value of a GIS in improving operational efficiency, COWD has called for an international tender for the creation of a GIS for its service area, as part of its scale-up activities.

The WOP resulted in the establishment of the National Water Supply and Sanitation Training Center equipped with a water laboratory and a meter test bench. Further, 10 district metered areas were established and a NRW management program was institutionalized.

  • wop asiaCognizant of the impacts of climate change to the operations of water service providers in the Philippines, the Philippine Association of Water District (PAWD) through the Community of Practice on Climate Change (PAWD CoP-CC) has expressed the need for its members to be climate resilient. The result was a twinning partnership between the Palm Beach County Water Utilities (PBCWU) through the Florida Water and Climate Alliance (FWCA) and PWAD-CoP CC. The twinning partnership is being facilitated by WaterLinks, an organization that promotes Water Operator Partnerships (WOPs) between water and wastewater service providers across Asia to improve their operational efficiency. The objective of this twinning partnership is to strengthen the capacities of PAWD’s CoP-CC Core group members through improved business planning process and enhanced operational systems in the context of present climate variability, extreme weather events ad uncertain climate futures. PAWD’s CoP-CC Core group members are: Leyte Metro Water District, Cagayan de Oro City Water District, Metro Iloilo Water District, Isabela City Water District and Metro Cotabato Water District.
