DAR turns over CPWASH project

visayan dailyThe Department of Agrarian Reform Negros Occidental 2 turned over a Community-Managed Potable Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene Project to Sitio Casal-agan Diotay, Brgy. Antipolo, Pontevedra, Negros Occidental, Friday.


The CPWASH Project will directly benefit 86 Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries, 307 students and 9 teachers of Casal-agan Elementary School and Casal-agan Day Care Center, respectively, a press release from DAR said yesterday.

Pontevedra Mayor Jose Maria Alonso thanked the DAR for choosing his town as one of the recipients of the project specifically the Sitio Casal-agan Diotay since the community is in dire need of potable water.

The project was started in December through the partnership of DAR and the local government of Pontevedra, in which the former provided the training while the latter shouldered the expenses for the facilities amounting to P50,000, which include a Bio-Sand Filter (BSF), Iron Removal Filter (IRF), Bio-Gas Digester and Rain Water Collector (RWC).

“This low-cost community-managed project, it will help the ARBs to minimize spending on buying mineral water and will provide them a water that is safe to drink,” Chief Agrarian Reform Program Officer (CARPO) Edna Villaruel, said.

Alonso, with Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Lucrecia Taberna, TESDA Provincial Director Joel Villagracia and Casal-agan Agrarian Reform Cooperative Chairman Constantino Aliste led the turnover and acceptance ceremony, the press release said.
