Laguna Well Field
Laguna Well Field is one of the largest groundwater facilities in the Philippines, and the largest in the Province of Laguna. It was developed to provide the more than 135,000 families in the cities of Binan, Santa Rosa, and Cabuyao improved access to safe and clean water. Consisting of four water reservoirs, it has the capacity to supply 100 million liters of water per day. The facility helps ensure sustainability of groundwater and improve operational reliability and efficiency.
The Laguna Water Story
Laguna Water, the largest water and used water (wastewater) services provider in the Province of Laguna, is a successful public-private partnership between the Provincial Government of Laguna and Manila Water Philippine Ventures, a subsidiary of Ayala-led Manila Water Company, Inc. (Manila Water). In 2015, Laguna Water's concession area was expanded to all the cities and municipalities within Laguna from the original service area of Biñan.
Kabuhayan Para Sa Barangay Program
The Kabuhayan Para sa Barangay (KPSB) or Livelihood for the Community program provides financial assistance or seed-capital, micro-enterprise trainings and development seminars to cooperatives that display the potential to grow their business but lack the financial capacity to do so. Whenever possible, the program integrates qualified cooperatives to Laguna Water’s supply chain where they may offer their products and services at competitive prices.
