NPCO Validates Irrigation Projects in Sibugay

National Project Coordinating Office (NPCO) recently validated some potential areas for Irrigation project within Zamboanga Sibugay that will be funded primarily by Agrarian Reform Community Project II (ARCP II) in the province. In charge for this project are; Engr.Eliseo G. Tolentino, Jr. Senior Irrigation Specialist, Engr. Meliton H. Macasied, Jr. EDCOP Consultant, Alfred Magabo, Project Evaluation Officer III, Teofilo Marco Legaspi, Jr. Project Evaluation Officer II, Rene Naces, Rural Infrastructure Officer II, and Emily Anne Bueno, Community Driven Development Officer II.
 
NPCO’s area validation lasted for two days which includes site visits in three POs namely: Titay, Namnama and Azusano Irrigators Association which are considered as prospective recipient of the irrigation projects. In the same process, they aim to evaluate how the existing irrigation helps the farmers in the area.
 
Among the areas validated were the Titay CIS, Namnama CIS and Azusano CIS which are from Titay, Zamboanga Sibugay which makes up the total land area of 512 hectares. The Titay CIS has a total of 136 hectares irrigated area, 55 hectares for restoration and 45 hectares potential irrigable area. Likewise, Namnama CIS has a total of 180 hectares irrigated area and 91 hectares potential irrigable land. While, Azusano CIS has a total of 100 hectares irrigated area, 55 hectares for restoration and 30 hectares for potential irrigable area.
 
LGU Titay represented by its administrator Mr. Gil D. Rillera, showed much interest in the project because it will help address the food security program of the Philippine Government as well as to uplift the economic condition of the farmer beneficiaries. Moreover, LGU is committed to pursue the project and very much willing to spend 50% of the total project cost as their local counterpart for its completion.
 
An exit meeting was held at Kusina Taway last June 26, 2013 in the morning with the Validating Team, Engr. Ruel C. Barraca, LGU-Titay engineer IV, Engr. Carlos A. Sabado, NIA, Ipil, IMO Head and Provincial Project Officers Headed by Cecilleta B. Estaño, ARCP2-Assistant Project Manager.
