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.

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.
