DAR implements potable water supply and sanitation projects in ARCs

Tuguegarao City (29 August) -- The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Provincial office has successfully implemented its Community-managed Potable Water Supply and Sanitation (CPWASS) projects in Agrarian Reform Communities (ARCs).

Engr. Eunomio Israel, PARO-Division Chief, said the program aims to enhance agrarian reform beneficiary household access to water and sanitation services by improving the water supply and sanitation in each family thru low-cost, culturally acceptable and appropriate technologies that can be managed and sustained by the community.

The program which was piloted in two remote barangays in the municipalities of Baggao and Piat, Cagayan was found to be successful and beneficial to the community.

Engr. Edward Maguddayao, Project Focal Person, said the project is for the poor and depressed barangays with contaminated water supply. It requires the installation and demonstration of a low-cost water supply technology and sanitation system.

Aside from the potable water system project, Israel and Maguddayao also introduced the bio-gas production project wherein the manure of animals or human beings and even the bio-degradable waste materials can be converted into methane gas as an alternative source of energy for cooking.

They likewise plan to introduce the project to the provincial government to solicit its support for technology transfer because this project will not only benefit the rural areas but also the urban areas.

The water supply sanitation and the biogas projects require about P15,000 for construction and implementation. (PIA Cagayan) [top]
