BRIEF HISTORY

Municipality of Indang is situated in the central part of Cavite Province approximately 12 km from Tagaytay Ridge. The Municipality consists of the Poblacion and surrounding barangays with a total land area of 8,920 hectares.

The original waterworks system was constructed in 1922-1924 with Ikloy Spring as its source and covers only the Poblacion. The system consists of a spring chamber, pumphouse with hydro turbine prime over and centrifugal pump, ground reservoir, 2 km transmission pipelines and distribution facilities. In 1980, a separate distribution pipe and ground reservoir in Barangay Kaytambog was included in the system. Total registered concessionaires were 463 as of August 1980. Water production from the spring source is 580 cu.m. of which only 26.6 percent is accounted for.

The total water demand for various design years is derived from the demands for domestic, commercial, institutional and public faucets demands including an allowance for leakage and wastage.

The possible sources of water supply for Indang are springs, namely, Ikloy, Ipie I and Ipie II. All the springs emanate from fissures on the contact between permeable pyroclastics and impermeable tuff above the river course. The full production of Ikloy Spring alone is estimated to meet the water demand of Indang Water District.

IWD regularly monitors its water quality through Monthly Bacteriological Analysis and Semi-annual Physical/Chemical Analysis. Disinfection is conducted through Chlorination which uses chlorine dosing pumps that directly injects chlorine solution to water transmission lines. The Chlorine Residual Test conducted obtained an average result of 0.3 ppm, which passes the minimum  hilippine National Standard for Safe Drinking Water (PNSDW). Copies of these test reports were regularly submitted to LWUA, twelve (12) Bacteriological Analysis Summary Reports and two (2) Semi-Annual Physical Examination Reports annually.

IWD also monitors each pump and motor efficiency by conducting regular test. Motors are checked for its meager resistance to identify if it fits long operating service or if it needs replacement. Pump discharge are being monitored to check its efficiency. Serviceable parts such as bearings, seals, and couplings are regularly checked and replaced. Out of the nineteen (19) pumps that are being used by IWD for its water production, fifteen (15) are operational and the four (4) serves as backup/ spare pumps.

OPERATIONAL

Operational
IWD’s water sources are two (2) spring sources and ten (10) deep wells. Its operational routine include, among others, meter reading and billing, operation of pumps, leak detection and repair, and other maintenance tasks.

Because of inadequate facilities, the District had to provide partial service in accordance with the following average length of time each 24-hours day:
Less than 6 hours of service None
7-12 hours service None
13-18 hours service 3,108 service connections
19-24 hours service 4,289 service connections
Among the 23 barangays being covered by IWD’s service, 9 barangays are enjoying 24 hours supply in its entire area or around 4,289 service connections. While 14 barangays are partially serviced with prescribed operating hours (13-18 hours) or equivalent to 3,108 service connections.
