Ayala-owned Manila Water Co. Inc. will implement the project. MWSS and Manila Water will provide a financial package of an infrastructure grant, a P10-million development assistance and a P10-million royalty fee to the towns of Norzagaray and Doña Remedios Trinidad, which will host the water supply project.[1] History Pre-Spanish records say the town of Norzagaray was once vast wilderness. It was then called "Casay" a mere barrio of the town Angat. During the Spanish occupation, the people of barrio Casay worked for reforms-politically, socially and economically in order to be separated from Angat. They succeeded in their separation bid Through Governor-General Fernando de Norzagaray y Escudero (1857-1860) who issued a proclamation declaring barrio Casay as a separate town from Angat. Political boundaries were established and barrio Casay was called "Norzagaray". The name of the town was taken from the Governor-General Fernando de Norzagaray y Escudero. Today, the town of Norzagaray is quickly rising in terms of commercial and economic status with tourist potentials. "Bakas" which is on a portion of the Angat River is recognized as one of the busiest places in the locality, particularly during summertime, which is noted for its natural beauty. People from distant towns often visit the place for relaxation. Another potential spot for tourism is where the Angat River Hydroelectric Plant or Angat Dam is located. This is the biggest hydroelectric plant the National Power Corporation (NPC) has ever constructed in terms of Power supply within the entire Philippines. Despite Angat Dam's size, it is not an exception to the list of dams which sink to critical points during the Dry season, it has had shortages and relies on cloud seeding during dry spells or dry seasons.The 37-kilometer reservoir of this hydroelectric plant is covered with forests that produce a cool climate. There is still other tourism potential in the locality. However, there are problems which need immediate attention. Some of this places are located in remote areas of the town which are inaccessible to motor vehicles. The town of Norzagaray is rich in natural resources and endowed with natural beauty. Its people are claimed to be religious, industrious and very hospitable just like any other person from Bulacan. 18-hectare landfill On January 19, 2008, an 18-hectare waste disposal facility, a new sanitary landfill that would also be a tourist attraction opened in Norzagaray, Bulacan province.
