As an institution responsive to the needs of the consuming public, ZCWD is bent on gearing up for the implementation of the various water infrastructure projects in 2015, which totals to an investment cost of Php 82.3 Million.

ZCWD is set to implement two (2) major infrastructure projects next year for the conflict-affected areas in the city amounting to PhP 95 million:

* Supply and Installation of Service Connections (Phase I)

* Upgrading of Existing PVC Pipeline (Phase I)

In addition, other projects for implementation in 2015, which have a combined cost of PhP 24.1 Million are:

* Pasobolong Production Well 2 Development

* Production Well and Collection Center at Governor Ramos Avenue

* Construction of Retaining Wall at Tamion Production Well

* Drainage System for the Ayala –I Production Well

* Pipeline Extension Project at Zone 1, Ledesma Street - Doña Benita - Julian Drive and Camias Drive – Mayor Jaldon

* Replacement of Don Pablo Lorenzo Street Pipeline

* Replacement of Governor Lim Avenue Pipeline

Other high impact projects include the following:

* Installation of Valves, Fittings and Appurtenances Replacement for District Metering Zones (DMZ) Formation

* Upgrading of the Luyahan Booster Primary Line

* Asphalt Restoration Project at Governor Lim Avenue

* Installation of One (1) 75mmØ Fire Hydrant with Concrete Barricade in Canelar

In its quest to improve services to the water consuming public, ZCWD continues the expansion and rehabilitation of dilapidated pipelines, the development of production wells to augment water supply as well as the establishment of the District Metering Zone (DMZ) in the West Coast area which will involve the installation of valves and fittings to give way to the forthcoming establishment of the 50MLD Bulk Water Supply Project in the locality.  The DMZ enables easier management and monitoring of water distribution services including the reduction of non-revenue water.

It would also be worthy to note that over  7,200 water service connections shall be installed /upgraded in the conflict area, and shall be at no cost to the recipient in said areas. However, bill payments shall be borne by the recipient.  Funding requirements for this project will come from the national government through the  Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Central Office.

ZCWD recognizes the need to cope with the increasing demand for potable water due to the rapid growth in population as well as the rise in commercial and industrial establishments in the city.  Thus, it recently formulated its Balanced Score Card (BSC) which lays the strategic directions for 2015-2020.  The BSC also provides the basis for measuring and evaluating organizational performance of the water district.
