"Water is the greatest gift of mother earth to mankind, and this most basic commodity is not just simply a need – it is essential in sustaining and nurturing life."

OVERVIEW

The Ilocos Norte Water District (INWD), like all other water districts in the Philippines, has set forth on its pursuit for excellent water delivery service. Believing that plain service is not enough, it has embarked continuously on up-to-date innovations on water developments to ensure that it could provide a continuous, safe and potable water twenty four hours a day the most reasonable cost.

Thus, INWD commits itself not only to the delivery of water to its beneficiaries but also to the preservation and protection of the environment - the very source where our water comes from.


BIRTH AND GROWTH

Looking back at the beautiful history of the Ilocos Norte Water District and its present status these days manifests its expeditious growth and development as a service oriented institution.

The Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Ilocos Norte through Resolution No. 47, Series of 1981, created the Ilocos Norte Water District (INWD) on February 9, 1981 and turned over the functions and operations of the Ilocos Norte Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (INMWSS) serving Laoag City as well as the municipalities of Bacarra, Vintar, Pasuquin and Paoay.

In 2003, the municipalities of Badoc, Pinili, Currimao, Piddig and Solsona, through resolutions from their respective Sangguniang Bayans, were annexed as service areas of INWD.

INWD started operations on August 16, 1982 with 3,300 concessionaires. By the end of December 2016, the number of concessionaires has increased to 23,304.

Today, the INWD leads other water districts in Region I as the first one to be officially re-categorized as "large". The re-categorization boosted the personnel complement to better serve the needs of our growing population.

INWD is headed by its General Manager, John M. Teodoro. It has a total of twenty (20) employees as of the 2019. Their office building is located at Ermita Hill, Laoag City, Ilocos Norte with a training center located in Sitio Dilomot, Brgy. Sapat, Pasuquin, Ilocos Norte.

SYSTEM FACILITIES AND RESOURCES

The Ilocos Norte Water District utilizes spring sources in Dilomot, Dinalsuan and Bararing in Pasuquin in Ilocos Norte (Dilomot Spring - 6 liters/sec., Dinalsuan Spring - 8 liters/sec., Bararing Spring - 8 liters/sec.) INWD also utilizes ground water from carefully selected locations in Laoag City, Vintar, Bacarra, Paoay, Pinili, Badoc, Solsona and Piddig, Ilocos Norte. The district has not stopped searching for possible water sources with an aim of developing them to continuously meet the water needs of the province.

INWD has concrete reservoirs in Ermita Hill and Camp Juan in Laoag City; Brgy. Libeng in Pasuquin; Brgy. Tara-Tara in Bacarra; Brgy. Pait in Vintar; Brgy. Nagbacalan in Paoay; and a couple more in Pinili and in Piddig, Ilocos Norte. INWD also has elevated steel tanks in Brgy. Ngabangab in Pasuquin, Brgy.

Chlorinating facilities in Laoag City, Paoay, Bacarra, Pasuquin, Vintar, Piddig, Currimao and Pinili help in ensuring the cleanliness and potability of the water being distributed to the concessionaires.

 

OUR COMMITMENT TO WATER QUALITY

Water quality is a deep concern and priority of INWD, so it put up its own Water Testing Laboratory. To date, it is the only water district in Region I that has this kind of facility, which has been duly accredited by the Department of Health (DOH).

Water is filtered and chlorinated at the source to ensure optimum water quality. Samples for laboratory checking and testingn are taken at the source, middle portions and the far ends of the water distribution networks. An INWD service vehicle circuits the service area regularly to collect water samples for rigid water quality monitoring. The said vehicle was acquired for the exclusive use if the INWD Water Testing Laboratory. This enables the water district to respond promptly to reports and complaints from the field.
