Buguias receives waterworks system from CHARM2 project
by Crislyn Fianza Balangen

BUGUIAS, Benguet – More residents of Barangay Bangao here can now enjoy accessible potable water as two new domestic water supply projects (DWS)  were constructed and turned over to the barangay by the Second Cordillera Highland Agriculture Resource Management (CHARM2) Project last May 19 at sitios Labayan and Daligdig.

The Daligdig and Buas-Labayan waterworks are now directly providing potable water to around 94 households in the three sitios with around 824 individual beneficiaries.

The funding for the DWS projects worth P820,000 each were shared by the municipal and provincial local government at 15 percent each of the total cost. The 70 percent of the amount needed was shouldered by the CHARM2 Project. The two projects were constructed from Feb. 20 to May 6 by North Base Construction.

Nordan M. Paca, manager of the North Base Construction, said the project was completed on time because of the full and concerted effort of the community who handled the labor as their counterpart to the project.

Residents were grateful for the completion of the DWS projects, as they shared they had to walk for around 20 minutes to reach the river where they usually bathe and do their laundry especially during the summer where water supply is limited.

Charlie Banario, BAWASA chair and Julie Quinisan, chair of the Northern Buguias Multi-Purpose Cooperative, said the project will be very helpful to the community as access to clean water can now be enjoyed by the residents.

“These projects are turned over to the community because they own it. Therefore, they have to maintain the projects starting with the conservation and protection of the watersheds where they source their water,” said Dr. Cameron P. Odsey, CHARM2 Project manager.

Gov. Nestor B. Fongwan committed additional pipes for the constructed waterworks such that it will reach the homes of the residents, and three streetlights each for sitios Daligdig and Labayan for 2016 under the provincial budget.
