In 2003, Mlang Water District was able to acquire a loan of four million pesos from the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA) and was augmented by a grant from the Office of the Congressman Gregorio T.

In year 2009, another grant was given to Mlang Water District by the Japanese Government, through the JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency), and with the collaboration of Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA).  The water system project is an elevated steel tank with 30 cu.m. – capacity constructed at Barangay Bagontapay, Mlang, Cotabato. 

Benefiting from the grants received, the, Mlang Water District extended its water supply to nearby barangays.  Presently, M’lang Water District has six (6) pumping stations located at the following barangays: Poblacion B, Sangat, Bagontapay, New Rizal, Pag-asa and Lika. Gradual expansions were being made to provide adequate water supply and cater to the demand of the growing population within the coverage area of Mlang Water District.
