TENDER CARE -- Youth under the Special Program for Employment of Student assigned at the Busol watershed tend to the young trees planted by eco-walkers. Regularly, various organizations, especially students, visit the watershed as part of the award-winning Eco-walk program aimed at sustaining and preserving one of the few remaining green patches in Baguio and La Trinidad, Benguet. -- Rosa Moresto

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – River marshals will be assigned along the Balili River system in this town and in Baguio City and along the Bued River in Tuba, Benguet to monitor those littering and dumping thrash that contribute to the pollution of these bodies of water.

The deployment of river marshals, who will work on a voluntary basis, is part of the rehabilitation efforts of the Balili and Bued Water Quality Management Area (WQMA).

For La Trinidad, the Women’s Brigade, which is composed of senior citizens, will be tapped.

For Baguio City, personnel of the City Environment, Parks, and Management Office are tasked as river marshals but they are still looking for volunteers who have passion in protecting the river system.

Wilma Lagunilla, chief of the Environment and Management Bureau Air Quality Monitoring Department, said the marshals were recently oriented on their roles and how to go about the documentation of violators.

The marshals will report to the EMB their accomplishment every month, which will be acted upon by the governing board of their respective WQMAs.

Lagunilla said the initiative will be sustained if it is proven effective in minimizing pollution in the rivers.

For proper identification, the marshals will be provided with uniforms and identification cards.

EMB-Cordillera Director Reynaldo Digamo appreciated those who volunteered as river marshals and committed to provide them personal gears and other needs which they need in their activities.

He said they are also working for their insurance coverage to complement their efforts.
