Since the promulgation of PD 198 on May 25, 1973, the corporate character of water districts has been, as defined by said decree, quasi-public or private.
However, on March 12, 1992 the Supreme Court ruled that water districts are government owned and controlled corporation and that employees fall under the coverage of the Civil Service Law and Rules and Regulations.
As government owned and controlled corporation, the Lemery Water District is now observing the rules of Civil Service Commission and Commission on Audit.
