Bokod gets potable water system
by Ma. Isabel Zabala

BOKOD, Benguet – Safe potable water supply will soon be enjoyed by 14,338 residents of this town, with the installation of around P12,613,905.68 worth of potable water system – a project funded by the Philippine Rural Development Project (PRDP) of the Department of Agriculture.

PRDP ProjectDirector Lorenzo Caranguian said that the PRDP Project Support Office recently approved the awarding of contract to F.B. Bantales Engineering Construction for the construction of Naubanan-Daclan Potable Water System in Bokod.

“Barangay Daclan will directly benefit from this sub-project, with at least 1,889 beneficiaries, while barangays Bila and Tikey will indirectly benefit, with at least 1,310 and 645 beneficiaries, respectively,” Caranguian said. 

The existing water work system in the municipality is not sufficient to supply the beneficiaries.

Springs are used as an alternative water source, which is said to cause the rise of  waterborne diseases and decrease of farm productivity, thereby decreasing farmers’ and resident’s income.

The project is expected to start soon and is intended to be finished within 152 days, said Engr. Elsa P. Gaspar of the Regional Project Coordination Office.

Gaspar said the recently approved sub-project has a total length of 11,016 kilometers passing through mountainous and rugged terrains.

The establishment of Level II water system is believed to increase the quality and quantity of potable water to be supplied to the community.

“Communal faucets can significantly increase the accessibility to potable water, which means that the people do not need to travel far just to fetch water from the springs,” Gaspar added.
