Eastern Iguig ARC receives P3.7M PWS project

IMG 1357a
Residents of Barangay Santa Barbara in Iguig town, province of Cagayan are the recipients of another major project – a Potable Water System (Level II). This project costs around P3, 709,000 and was funded under the Department of Agrarian Reform –Infrastructure Support Project III (DAR-ARISP III).
Previously, most of the residents of the Santa Barbara Agrarian Reform Community (Santa Barbara ARC) have inadequate access to potable water and are left no choice but to use sources of water that are often contaminated with disease-carrying organisms or have unacceptable levels of toxins which often cause acute and chronic illnesses. In the developing world such as the Philippines, deaths occur from diarrhea in children under 5 years old. This is aggravated by malnutrition which can decrease the children's resistance to infections, including water-related diarrheal diseases. In addition to that, additional expenses for medical services and medicines also contribute to the burden of the residents.
 
The completed Santa Barbara Potable Water System consists of an elevated steel tank with a capacity of 22 cu.m., 1.845 linear meters distribution lines and 150 linear meters depth (deep well), 7.5 horsepower submersible pump. It will serve around 1,458 people consisting of 216 households.
 
The project was turned-over last December 10, 2013 by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) represented by Atty. Marjorie P. Ayson and to represent the Local Government Unit of Iguig (LGU-Iguig), Mayor Juditas L. Trinidad was also present during the event.
 
The provision of the Level PWS project aims to reduce water-borne diseases in the community and to provide water for backyard livelihood opportunities such as vegetable production and other similar activities. (Christian D. Sales)
