NIA turns over irrigation projects to Sablan farmers
by Noimie S. Budoy and Kimberley D. Eday

SABLAN, Benguet – Local officials urged the two irrigators’ associations of Barangay Bayabas to maintain their Communal Irrigation System (CIS).

The National Irrigation Administration turned over to the Bayabas CIS on March 7 to Bulala Irrigators’ Association and the Calamay Irrigators’ Association.

Sablan Vice Mayor Manuel Munar and Joseph Galaw-ey from the Office of the Governor expressed their appreciation to the beneficiaries of the irrigation system for being active participants that lead to the completion of the project.

Munar urged the irrigators’ associations to paint the reservoir tanks and inscribe the name of their association in them as a reminder of their success and to ensure its continued maintenance to sustain the efficiency of irrigation to their farms.

The P5 million worth project was funded by the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program and implemented by the NIA.

It was divided into  the Calamay Sector and the Bulala Sector.

The Bulala Sector with water source from the Ubbog Spring has four reservoir tanks and 4.32 kilometers of pipelines. This will be operated by the Bulala Irrigators’ Association with 20 members covering 15 hectares.

The Calamay Sector was turned over on Feb. 27 to the Calamay Irrigators’ Association which has 34 beneficiaries with a total aggregate service area of 35 hectares. The water comes from the Ambingel Creek and has five reservoir tanks and 5.18 kilometers high density polyethylene pipelines.

Maria Theresa Manuel, NIA irrigation development officer, said the irrigation facilities of the Bayabas CIS were first constructed by the NIA and the farmers in the mid-1980s and 1990s. Repair of the system included replacement of the corroded GI pipes into high density polyethylene pipes and construction of additional reservoir tanks.
