piaNEGROS OCCIDENTAL, Aug. 23 (PIA6) - - Residents of Barangay Caliling in Cauayan town, southern part of the province will soon have access to potable water with the Community-Managed Potable Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (CPWASH) Project.

The CPWASH project is an initiative of the Department of Agrarian Reform to provide clean and potable water to far-flung communities especially where they have agrarian reform beneficiaries or where they have agrarian reform communities, a release from DAR said.

DAR launched the project  with a memorandum of agreement signed by the representative from the local government of Cauayan, the  barangay and DAR.

Under the MOA, DAR will shoulder the expenses for training and other logistics while the local government will shoulder the materials, which for the construction of Bio-Sand Filter, Iron Removal Filter, Bio-Gas Digester and Rain Water Collector.

The CPWASH project will directly benefit the residents of Brgy. Caliling and almost 500 students and pupils of day care centers, elementary and high schools of the said barangay.

This low-cost community-managed project will help the beneficiaries to minimize spending on buying mineral water and will provide them water that is safe to drink.

Eight para-engineers were hired to construct the project which will start soon.*(JCM/EAD-PIA6 Negros Occidental)
