Disaster preparedness for water utilities
 by Engr. Antonio B. Magtibay, MNSA

Water supply systems are vulnerable to sudden unpredictable disasters from natural and man-made disasters. Several earthquakes have adversely affected, water sources and have caused damage to pipelines. Gen. Santos City WD experienced increased pipe breakages along their transmission lines whenever a spate of earthquakes will occur in the area. The Mt. Pinatubo eruptions in 1991 partially or completely disabled the water systems of some municipalities in Pampanga, Zambales and Tarlac. Mt. Mayon’s eruptions have constantly affected the sources and operations of the water districts in the immediate vicinity. Incidents of cholera and typhoid fever are becoming more frequent and one of the causes of the outbreaks has been attributed rightly or otherwise to the local water districts.

GOOD CORPORATE GOVERNANCE for Water Districts comes about through an efficiently and effectively working, strategic Board, and appropriate, productive Management System of Local Utilities. Absence of such governance can be a "deterrent to economic growth, hazard to public health, and irritant to the spirit and well-being of the citizenry."
