Welcome to DAR Region VI



CPWASH-DAR project turn-over

theGuardianA MULTI-partite water development project spearheaded by the Department of Agrarian Reform and Bago City government was turned over to Brgy. Mailum, Bago City yesterday.

The project was mounted in cooperation with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Friends of the Highland Producers Cooperative (FHPC) and the Community-Managed Potable Water Supply Sanitation and Hygiene (CPWASH).

The eecipients of the projects were the Mailum Day Care Center which received 1 unit of Biosand Filter; Armando Zayco and Erlinda Salvador (2 units of Biosand Filter for two households); RM Araneta Elementary School (iron removal filter); FHPC Center (iron filters for 39 Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries or ARBs); and Dexter and Dennis Pactao (a Biogas Digester for two households).

CPWASH has partnered with the Department of Agrarian Reform and Center for Water and Sanitation since 2007 and contributed in reducing the huge proportion of people without access to safe drinking water good sanitation.

It models a theory-based intervention which addresses water, energy, health and promoted green local economy.

The program introduces water and sanitation (WATSAN) facilities such as iron removal filter and biosand filter to remove the bad odor, discoloration, residue and impurities (protozoa, plant roots debris, decomposed insects and animals).

This low-cost community manage project aimed at minimizing the expenses on the part of ARBs in buying mineral water.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer 1 Ronald Gareza said he wanted the project to be replicated as DAR has already trained 10 para-engineers.

Gareza said the ARBs can do business using the technology with other ARBs, community households and the likes.

DAR provided the transfer of technologies while the cooperatives took care of the labor and manpower for the building of facilities.

The Bago City government provided the construction materials.

Around 1.1 million Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries’ households require upgrading from the current level 1 water system to improve quality of water and sanitation.

WATSAN facilities are better compared with commercial purified and distilled water supply which does not have the presence of good bacteria anymore. (With a report from PIA)
