Baguio, La Trinidad embark on two-year Balili rehab project
by Julie G. Fianza / PIO

A four-semester project for the rehabilitation of the Balili River will be conducted after stakeholders and partners forged a memorandum of agreement last week.

The Ripples for River Rehabilitation of the Balili River System Revitalization Coalition (BRSRC) gathered barangay officials and involved agencies for the agreement covering the implementation of the project.

The MOA was signed with City Mayor Mauricio Domogan, La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda, the academe, and partner agencies present.

Dr. Gaudelia Reyes of Saint Louis University gave the mechanics. The first part of the project covers a needs assessment through a walk-through in the barangays’ portion of the Balili River, survey and association with barangay constituents, analysis and preparation of the report, and submission to the BRSRC.

All activities up to the end of the project should be properly documented, Reyes said.

The second part would be the preparation of the barangay action plan and identification of adoptors or partner agencies. An agreement would then be forged for the involvement of the adoptors in the project. Institution or establishments that are members of the BRSRC, may provide manpower or funding as their counterpart.

A barangay environmental team would then be formed and trainings will be conducted.

The last part of the project is the implementation of river rehabilitation activities, which would be monitored. A progress report will be submitted to the BRSRC.

The self-reliance and sustenance of the activities for river rehabilitation will be evaluated through the documents and reports submitted, with cash prizes at the end of each year of implementation.

At least 37 barangays within Baguio City and La Trinidad that are traversed by the river are involved in the project.

Domogan and Salda urged barangay constituents of the city and municipality to unite and participate in the continuing advocacy of river cleanliness.

“It is our goal to have clean waters, the same as the Balili River of my youth, by 2040,” Salda said.
