his quarter’s theme of “20/20 Anew” prompts us to a year afresh. Relating this to visual acuity, “vision 20/20” is given this year for us to live, relive, and outlive what the past years had. Vision 20/20 is considered normal vision and is commonly used as a point of reference when measuring visual acuity, but it is not perfect. Just like our service in Davao City Water District, it is not perfect but we are trying our best to give a normal yet efficient service to all. Testaments to this are the expansion of our service connection to the southwest border of Davao City with the inauguration of the new Binugao-Sirawan water supply system and another milestone in the Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project of DCWD.

Editor’s Note

T

20/20 in 2020 In this issue, we highlight our collective efforts in pursuit of hitting our targets as an opening salvo of the year. For the first four months, DCWD has enriched camaraderie with fellow WDs through hosting the PAWD National Convention, holding the first GAD summit, and conducting annual benchmarking activities where we share our best practices on running our operations efficiently. Aside from fostering good relationships amongst ourselves for working towards a shared goal of providing clean and accessible water to all, we actively participated in the policy formulation for local climate change in Davao City with other stakeholders and promoted advocacies of water conservation and environment protection to selected schools. These ongoing operations and vital events would not have been made possible without a competent workforce. We congratulate those who had advanced in their careers and send off with gratitude our lone retiree from service. It has been a productive first portion of the year, and while we cannot always see what lies ahead, we can always prepare by staying grounded to our purpose and acting with a heart for service, creativity in the face of obstacles, and trust in ourselves and those around us. Here’s to a normal yet clearer sight for 2020!

From the GM’s Desk

Opportunities Aplenty in 2020

A

new year is often followed by brand new beginnings, but in DCWD, a new year is a new opportunity to expand on our existing achievements, going farther and beyond what is expected of us. In the first quarter, we welcomed significant milestones towards sustainable and safe water-sourcing. These developments prove that we bring to fruition all our aspirations for high quality water service in Davao City. As we launch our initiatives towards fulfilling DCWD’s Vision, we do so with excellence. This commitment to providing valuable service is evidenced by numerous accolades received from governing bodies for our efforts on water quality and for supporting initiatives of the national government.

These premium distinctions are not limited in the forms of tangible certificates and trophies. We have opened the year with activities that reflect true servant-leadership where, as we lead in providing a responsive water supply service, we also impart our knowledge to our fellow WDs, thus extending our impact beyond our immediate service coverage. As we fulfill the part of being the best water service provider, we are also working towards being gender-responsive and environmentally responsible, testaments to our shared objective of being holistic and true to our Vision. The rest of 2020 will be filled with many more opportunities that will edge us closer to shared goals – sustainably providing safe water and preserving the environment for all.

Safe water assured with DCWD’s bulk water project Jovana Cresta T. Duhaylungsod

W

ater safety is the top priority in the ongoing development of the Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project.

DCWD, Apo Agua, and JVACC conduct regular joint water sampling to monitor the river water quality. The samples are tested in different DOH-accredited laboratories.

This is Davao City Water District’s assurance with the classification of Tamugan River as Class A per the list of classified water bodies from the Environmental Management Bureau. Class A classification means that the river is for Public Water Supply Class II, “intended as source of water supply requiring conventional treatment to meet the Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water” (PNSDW). Taking this classification into account, project partners DCWD and Apo Agua Infrastructura, Inc., are firm on the agreement that the water to be supplied to the Davaoeños should meet the PNSDW. Apo Agua has designed a water treatment process which consists of coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, and disinfection. Further, DCWD, Apo Agua, and J.V. Angeles Construction Corporation (JVACC) have been doing joint water quality testing and actively coordinating with the immediate local barangays in the Panigan-Tamugan River to strengthen local participation in protecting the river. The results of the raw water quality tests are among the baseline data used to develop an Integrated Watershed Development and Management Plan for the Panigan-Tamugan River. The Plan is in response to the emerging challenges and prevailing issues encountered in the Panigan-Tamugan area and will help secure the water sources for the city. This undertaking is being done in coordination with the Watershed Management Council, particularly, the Davao City Multipartite Monitoring Team.

DCWD adopts Gender Mainstreaming Guidelines Sheila May S. Bresenio

D

avao City Water District’s Gender Mainstreaming Guidelines has been approved for implementation per Board Resolution No. 20-034 issued on January 10, 2020. But what is gender mainstreaming and why are these guidelines important? Let us take a look back at DCWD’s Gender and Development (GAD) mainstreaming journey to appreciate this breakthrough. In 2019, the DCWD GAD Focal Point System (GFPS) that served as the planning team prepared the DCWD GAD Agenda to mainstream gender and achieve gender equality outcomes. The GAD Agenda has three (3) strategic goals: Gender-responsive policies; GAD competent workforce; and GAD inclusive Programs, Activities, and Projects (PAPs). Integrated efforts of all departments is vital to achieve these strategic goals and comply with the mandated minimum cost requirement for GAD, which is 5% of the total corporate budget. To achieve these goals, DCWD has to understand how to do gender mainstreaming, when to do such, and who the key players are. Thus, the Gender Mainstreaming Guidelines was developed to guide and assist project

implementers through the process of GAD attribution. lt prescribes procedures in integrating GAD in the development, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of DCWD organization or client focused PAPs or / Performance Improvement Programs/Projects (PIPs). The guidelines also provides information on the importance of gender mainstreaming as well as its legal bases and definition of terms to guide project implementers. In addition, the guidelines details the step-by-step procedures on how to integrate GAD perspective in every phase of DCWD’s PAPs/PlPs so that corresponding budget will be properly attributed. The guidelines also offers templates for transmittal, budget attribution, workflow, and project design for reference by all DCWD departments. In all, the guidelines facilitates gender mainstreaming as a process in DCWD’s planning and doing cycle. Modest as it is, the adoption of Gender Mainstreaming Guidelines is among DCWD’s breakthroughs towards the realization of its vision to become the best and gender-responsive water and wastewater service provider.

GAD Unit Supervisor Hope D. Olivo presents the GAD guidelines to program implementers during a consultation meeting.
