The Irrigation Guide provides technical information and procedures that can be used for successful plan-ning, design, and management of irrigation systems. It is a guide only and does not imply or set Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) policy. Irrigation systems should apply the amount of water. In the Philippines, focus on agricultural water management dwells on improving flood control, dam operations, planning database, stewards' capability, and irrigation performance. Quest for improved agricultural water management, of course, precedes the climate change buzz and for improved irrigation system performance also precedes the rice self-sufficiency thrust. National irrigation systems (NIS) are large and medium schemes. These are basically operated and maintained by NIA where beneficiaries are charged irrigation service fee for the services rendered in the delivery of water. In the s, joint management of portions of national systems with irrigators associations (IA) was effected. the irrigation-related (Small Water Impounding Projects) projectsof the DA's Bureau of Soils and Water Management as well as other agricultural programs are expected to be better coordinated with irrigation concerns.

On the other hand, the six-volume Master Plan Study on Water Resources Management in the Philippines spearheaded by NWRB was undertaken, thanks to a grant from the Japan International Cooperation Agency to the Philippine government, to formulate a master plan on water resources development and management in the 12 water resources regions of the. Water Supply Management. The water supply system in the Philippines are organized by Water Districts, except for Metro Manila, where the water is supplied 24 hours a day by two water concessionaires. In the other urban areas covered by Water District’s the water supply is supplied less than 24 hours a day.

The longest and largest river, Cagayan River, discharges approximat million cubic meters of water annually.
