MOst Outstanding good Services in Davao City, Philippines

Davao City Water District

A long time ago, the old Davaoeños relied on mother nature - the Davao river and the rain for their water needs. Since these were not enough, the first waterworks system came about in 1921. Called the Sales waterworks System, it tapped the Malagos creek to serve about 10,000 consumers. As the populace grew, studies for improvement were made and so in 1968, the water system was placed under the National Waterworks and Sewerage Authority (NAWASA). This signaled the construction of better water facilities. Demand for more potable water proportionately grew with the increasing population.

Davao Light & Power Company

More commonly known as “Davao Light” is the company that supplies electricity to the whole of Davao City. This is one of the subsidiaries of Aboitiz - the known shipping company.

Founded in 1929 and acquired by Aboitiz & Company in 1946, Davao Light and Power Company is the third largest privately-owned electric utility in the Philippines. It holds the franchise for distributing electric power to Davao City, the largest city in the world in terms of land area, as well as Panabo City and the municipalities of Carmen, Dujali, and Sto. Tomas in Davao del Norte. On September 29, 2000, the franchise was renewed for another 25 years by virtue of Republic Act 8960.
