Domestic Water Supply

Water Supply System of the Municipality of Bacolod is being handled by the Bacolod Water District, under the supervision of the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA). This water system was formerly under the administration of the Local Government Unit, but due to the limited funds of the LGU and with the desire of the local administration to expand the water supply system services to the barangays, the facilities has been turned-over to the LWUA for further development hence, the creation of the Bacolod Water District. At present, the BWD have already crawled their pipelines to the coastal barangays, thus potable water supply is no longer a problem for these benefitted barangays.
