A pearl buried inside a tightly-shut shell is practically worthless. Government information is a pearl, meant to be shared with the public in order to maximize its inherent value. The Transparency Seal, depicted by a pearl shining out of an open shell, is a symbol of a policy shift towards openness in access to government information. On the one hand, it hopes to inspire Filipinos in the civil service to be more open to citizen engagement; on the other, to invite the Filipino citizenry to exercise their right to participate in governance. This initiative is envisioned as a step in the right direction towards solidifying the position of the Philippines as the Pearl of the Orient – a shining example for democratic virtue in the region.


The year 2018 was a commemoration of the years of existence of BCWD as a stable water service provider in our locality despite of the varied challenges and trials encountered by the agency.

On this year, the Exploratory Drilling at Barangay Tabon, Bislig City was implemented amounting to P 2,200,000.00 and awarded to Hanna Via Design and Construction, Inc. and completed last September 19, 2018 With this development and implementation the scarcity problem of the served barangays will now be addressed.

Our concessionaires from Barangays Tabon and Mangagoy in up-land areas will now be given continuous water supply 24/7 to their respective households.

Other projects implemented by BCWD were:

1.) Procurement of 10KVA GenSet for Tabon Deepwell with a total cost of P 999,000.00 completed last July 14, 2018;
2.) Procurement of one (1) unit Jack Hammer with a total cost of P 260,000.00 completed last April 11, 2018;

4.) Procurement of 4 units Generator set for Coleto, San Antonio, San Vicente and Sitio Mantaban Pumping Stations with a total cost of P 200,000.00;

Moreover, part of 2018’s struggle aside of ensuring a potable 24/7 water supply to its concessionaires was on how to combat the harmful and drastic effects of climate change that we are currently facing nowadays, and how to adopt and mitigate the impacts of natural disasters that may possibly occur in our country being situated at the Pacific Ring of Fire and as a result of the said rapid climatic changes in milieu.
