For its 32nd Anniversary celebration, the DCWD Management, headed by General Manager (GM) Adelfo B. Valle, and the DCWD Board of Directors namely Atty. Liberato C. Reyna, Jr. (Chairman), Mr. Raymundo H. Ramos (Vice-Chairman), Dr. Arlene G. Sanchez (Secretary), Dr. Voltaire Emeliano Siapno-Tada (Director) and Mr. Armand Roth E. Duque (Director), unveiled the “30/30 FOR 2020” program during the main celebration of DCWD’s 33rd anniversary on July 29, 2019.
The program entails the collective efforts of DCWD employees to apply effective marketing strategies and promotional activities to increase the District’s active service connections to at least 30,000 and to reduce its Non-Revenue Water (NRW) to 30% or less. These objectives are part of the requirements of the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA) for DWCD to be reclassified from Category B to A which is the goal of the program to be achieved next year.
DCWD Board Chairman Reyna emphasized during his welcome address that it is high time for DCWD to be one of the Category A Water Districts in the country and to be the first one in Pangasinan by increasing the number of active concessionaires and reducing its NRW. The Board Chairman also stated that this goal is within the reach of DCWD which will be prioritized for its achievement on the District’s celebration of its 33rd anniversary next year. GM Valle assured the Board that the DCWD workforce will cooperate and coordinate to achieve this goal and that the marketing strategies and promotional activities will be spearheaded by the Marketing Committee and the Customer Service Division. Vice-Chairman Ramos, Director Sanchez, Director Siapno-Tada and Director Duque expressed their thoughts and ideas on the said celebration and the unveiled program during the occasion.
The celebration also included the heartwarming performance of the DCWD Choral group Aqufellas with their rendition of the song “Say Danum Et Belay,” while employees from the Office of the General Manager showcased their talents in singing, dancing and acting in their dynamic performance that lead to the roaring applause of the audience.
