DAR provides potable water facility in Guinobatan

piaLEGAZPI CITY, Feb. 16 (PIA) --Residents in the agrarian reform community of Singungtan, Guinobatan, Albay heaved a sigh of relief after the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) turned over a potable water supply systems.

The project, implemented under the Community-managed Potable Water Supply Sanitation and Hygiene (CPWASH), is a collaborative effort of DAR, Philippine Center for Water and Sanitation (PCWS) and the Local Government Unit of Guinobatan to provide safe drinking water, and promote proper hygiene especially in areas with high incidence of water-borne diseases.

In a simple turnover ceremony, one unit of rain-water collector, two units of biogas digester, and six units of iron-removal filter were formally turned over to the barangay.

DAR Bicol regional director Luis Bueno, Jr. said that prior to the potable water project of DAR, farming families in Sinungtan used to fetch water from deep wells and other sources that were suspected of being contaminated with disease carrying organisms.

“Some sources [of water] reportedly were found to have high levels of toxins which cause acute and chronic illnesses,” said Bueno.

During the turn over, certificates of training were also awarded to five local masons who were trained in the construction of the potable water facilities.  Graduates of said training are referred to as CPWASH Para-Engineers and they are authorized to offer CPWASH construction services in their area.
