he Metropolitan Cebu Water District (MCWD) opens the year 2012 with a partnership with Maynilad Water Services, Inc. through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on January 6, 2012 to make it official. 

 The two water districts recognized there is an increasing demand for potable drinking water in Cebu due to the growing population.

 Maynilad, a private corporation based in Quezon City, expressed its willingness to submit project proposals on Surface Water Source Development that also involves bulk water supply, pipe-laying activities in areas where MCWD have not served yet and septage management, among others. 

 However, as agreed upon, Maynilad has  yet to make a feasibility study on its own expense that could serve as a guide for these proposals.  The study starts after the MOU signing and is expected to be completed in six months.

 MCWD, on the other hand, will assist by providing relevant data and documents related in the conduct of the study.

 Present during the MOU signing were MCWD BOD Chairman Eligio Pacana, GM Armando Paredes and other MCWD officials while Maynilad was represented by its President Victorico Vargas and Senior Vice President for Marketing Patrick Gregorio.
