PIA Press Release

Pangasinan farmers get free water pumps

Lingayen, Pangasinan (22 March) -- A total of 190 units of water pumps have been awarded to 45 irrigators' associations in the province as of March 18 benefitting some 21,022 farmer-members.

Gov. Amado T. Espino, Jr. said the water pump distribution is part of the emergency mitigation measures to help farmers affected by the on-going dry spell.

Lately, 31 units were distributed to the Lower Agno River Irrigation System (LARIS) Federation of Irrigators' Association in Barangay Carmay East in Rosales.

The provincial government has purchased a total of 500 units of water pumps for the affected farmers for distribution during the latter part of January and early February but the absence of supply in the market delayed the timetable.

The remaining 310 water pump units will soon be distributed to irrigators' associations after validation.

"Ito ang pagtugon ng ating gobernador sa mga hinaing ng ating mga magsasaka na sana ay matulungan sila na magkaroon ng paraan para mapatubigan ang kanilang natutuyuang mga pananim," Provincial Agriculturist Dalisay Moya said, adding that all the water pumps were given free to the farmers.

Oftociano Manalo, president of the regional and provincial irrigator's associations, commended the timely action of the governor. "Bilib kami kay governor dahil inaksyunan niya kaagad yung mga requests naming water pumps."

Moya encouraged the farmers to as much as possible utilize open water source such as creeks or rivers in irrigating their ricefields so as not to deplete the scarce underground water source. (PIO/PIA Pangasinan) [top]
