Watershed board to firm up Iloilo water security plan

Iloilo City (24 September) -- The Iloilo Watershed Management Council (IWMC) and the Tigum-Aganan Watershed Management Board (TAWMB) are in the process of firming up a Water Security Plan for the City and Province of Iloilo based on the programs and strategies recommended by participants in a Workshop on Water Security held recently at the Iloilo Provincial Capitol.

The planning workshop was part of the Rainwater Harvesting for Climate Change Project which the IWMC and the TAWMB are jointly undertaking, which is aimed at mitigating impact of climate change through the adoption of rainwater harvesting technology.

Guiding the councils on the preparation of the water security plan are experts/specialists on Rain Water Catchment System, Geologic Information System and Hydrology who supported the technology of Rainwater Harvesting as a tool for flood control and diversified use of saved rain water.

Rain water Catchment System specialist Andrew Lo said rainwater harvesting can prevent floods when upland as well as lowland communities construct catchment structures which can store rain water, which later on can be used for irrigation, eco-tourism, recreation parks, fishponds and domestic purposes.
