The Local Water Utilities Administration, an Agency Earning in Silence
ESTABLISHED in 1973 as a specialized lending institution mandated by law to promote and oversee the development of provincial waterworks systems in the Philippines, the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA) secures the access to safe water supply for many cities and towns, from the popular destinations of Cebu, Boracay, Baguio, and Davao, to the virtually unknown towns such as Malang in North Cotabato or Culasi in Antique. During its nearly 33 years of existence, LWUA has invested more than R16 billion in various provincial water projects, with R7 billion put in from 2001 to 2005 without a single cent coming from the fiscally challenged national government.
