Metropolitan Cebu Water District or MCWD is Cebu City’s premier water utility company. It is a government owned and controlled company (GOCC). MCWD was certified to be ISO 9001:1994 in the year 2003.
The history of MCWD started in 1910. The Cebu Municipal Council created the Osmeña Waterworks Systems (OWS). The first major source of water was the Buhisan Dam, which is still in use today. To date, MCWD has various water sources, other than the Buhisan Dam.
Over the years, MCWD has garnered numerous awards including Most Outstanding Water District in the very large water district category for its “exemplary performance in providing water services with sustained superior levels of institutional and financial viability” in 1998 and 2000; Most Outstanding Accredited Agency in Region VII in 2000, 2001 and 2002; and the Civil Service Commission elected MCWD to the Hall of Fame.
MCWD has since transferred to their new building near the Cebu City Hall, at Magallanes - Lapulapu Street, boasting of state of the art facilities, larger parking spaces and waiting areas.
Unless they hold a no-downpayment scheme promo, the normal application down payment water connection fee is P1,500.00. Or you can opt to pay the total amount of P4,950 upon water application.
