Safe water for 3 farming communities

manila bulletin blue logoPotable water supply systems set up in three farming barangays in Galimuyod, Ilocos Sur, have been completed by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), ensuring that 125 household-beneficiaries of the project are kept safe from various water-borne diseases.

Christianne Suguitan, provincial agrarian reform program officer, said the water facilities were set up in Barangays McKinley, Kilang and Mabayag in Galimuyod, where there is a high incidence of water-borne diseases.

Suguitan said each water system consists of a biogas digester, iron removal filter, bio-sand filter, and rain water collector.

“The iron removal filter, rain water collector and bio-sand filter will solve the problem of water impurities in Kilang and McKinley, while the biogas digester will address the sanitation problem in Mabayag,” she explained.

The biogas digester, she said, is a sanitation facility that produces methane gas from livestock manure and human wastes and converts it to liquefied petroleum gas for cooking.

An interesting part of the project is that 10 farmers, belonging to 10 agrarian reform cooperatives, were trained for the installation of the facility.

The project for the benefit of the Kampana agrarian reform community (ARC), was implemented through the efforts of DAR, the Philippine Center for Water and Sanitation, and the Galimuyod municipal government.
