DCWD: Get new service connection as low as P500

Davaoeños who may want to apply for a new service connection (NSC) can now avail it for P500, an official from Davao City Water District (DCWD) revealed.

Jovana Cresta Duhaylungsod, DCWD spokesperson, said instead of paying the P6,000 NSC fee right away, customers can pay it by installment.

“They only have to initially pay P500 to have their water service installed and connected to DCWD,” Duhaylungsod said during the AFP-PNP Press Corps, March 6.

The remaining P5,500, according to Duhaylungsod, will be paid on a staggered basis , with no interest, for the next 11 months. The P500 per month will reflect on their monthly water bill.

“Nakita man gud nato nga despite sa lifting, naay residences nga maglisod gihapon og process sa application not because of the requirements, but of the NSC fee which is dako kung one time payment,” she said.

The installment option complements the lifting of the suspension of new service connection applications in several areas in Panacan Water Supply System (WSS) (Sasa, Panacan, Ilang, Tibungco, Bunawan, and Lasang); Cabantian WSS (Cabantian, Communal, and Indangan); and most of Dumoy WSS (Sasa, Pampanga, Lanang, Bajada, Buhangin, Indangan, Mandug, Agdao and Downtown proper), effective January 1.

The applicant may avail of the offer, provided that their service connection is classified as residential and with ½” water meter size. They should have already signed the contract within the validity period from March 5-31.

Residents are advised to visit DCWD branches in Matina, Bajada and Toril and bring valid ID of the account holder and if an applicant processes on behalf of the owner, they are required to bring valid ID and notarized authorization of the owner.

A proof of possession of property, deed of sale and lot title is also required. The complete list of requirements can be accessed through Those who opt to process it online are advised to visit

Meanwhile, Duhaylungsod reported that pipelaying activities are underway, so road repair works have increased due to the start of the distribution of bulk water.

Trenches that were left open and unrepaired, have ongoing pipe laying activities, reason for it not to be restored yet. She added that as long as there is no work left, those trenches are restored right away.

The official said so long as trenches are open they install warning devices for public safety, especially in major thoroughfares.

DCWD consumers are told to manage expectations, and low pressure to no water can still be experienced due to operational adjustments being simultaneously carried out to expand the reach of the bulk water supply.
