DAR To Provide Clean Water In The Rural Community Of Nueva Vizcaya

june 5 2015 reg 1The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the municipality of Ambaguio, Nueva Vizcaya for the establishment of Community-managed Potable Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (CPWASH) project to ensure the continued supply of safe drinking water in the community of Ambaguio.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II (PARPO II) Primo C. Lara, and Ambaguio Mayor Arnold Dinungon signed the MOA for St. Damien Cooperative to protect the health of the people in the community.

Mayor Dinungon said the project is very important to the people because there is a shortage of potable water in their area.

“CPWASH will be integrated in the 2016 Ambaguio  Municipal Development Plan and constructed in every barangay,” he said.

The project, composed of Iron Removal Filter, Bio-sand Filter, Biogas Digester and Water Collector, is expected to benefit 320 members of the cooperative and their household members.june 5 2015 reg 2

Under the MOA, DAR will provide Php80,000.00 for the capacity building of the identified para-engineers, LGU will shoulder Php50,000.00 for the materials while St. Damien Cooperative will give Php30,000.00 for the labor cost.

PARPO Lara said the project is also expected to contribute to the attainment of one of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) of ensuring sustainable environment thru the provision of access to source of potable, safe and clean drinking water for the target beneficiaries.

Dinungon said he would implement the project in his own house as a way of advertising it and be emulated by other municipalities.

MGD are development goals that were established following the Millennium Summit of the United Nations in 2000. To ensure environmental sustainability is one of its goals.

The MOA signing is witnessed by various DAR and LGU personnel.
