Prior to that, a hands-on construction of facilities in the area was personally managed by DARCO official, Mr. Bing Quite together with CARPO Nerisa Aldea, Engr. Anselmo Vargas, and Dr. John Joseph Camu.

The water project in Bon-ot, amounting to P 155,000.00 is said to be the first in the province. From this amount, the San Andres LGU allocated P 50,000.00 as counterpart fund. The project uses low-cost, culturally acceptable and appropriate technology that can be managed by the host community. It features provision of iron removal filter, bio-sand filter, rainwater collector, and bio-gas digester. Along with it, the project was complemented by swine and feeds dispersal in the area where the fund of it was taken from the regular fund of the DAR in Catanduanes. (Esvillar)
