During the Regional Development Council (RDC) Full Council meeting held recently, the proposed establishment of the said project has been endorsed by the committee with a total budgetary requirements of P20,500,000.

Awasian River is one of the major river systems of Tandag. Its watershed area covered an estimated 909 hectares forestland that extends to three barangays. The Ihawan and Andanan Creeks which are tributaries to Awasian river is currently the source of water supply for the TWD concessionaires and irrigation requirement in the downstream area of the watershed.
