Foundation asked to realign funds to Camp 8 watershed
by PIO release

Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan said the fencing of watersheds in the city will remain one of the priority programs and projects to be implemented by concerned government agencies, the city government, and the private sector.

Domogan said that the fencing of the Busol Watershed will be replicated in other critical watersheds in the city to prevent these reservations from intrusions by informal settlers.

The fencing of the Busol Watershed was an initiative of the Baguio Regreening Movement (BRM), a non-government organization advocating for the preservation and protection of the city’s environment.

This was supported by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources under the leadership of former secretary Ramon Paje who facilitated the release of some P18 million for the full implementation of the project.

“We always made the preservation and protection of the environment as one of our priorities because it is our forests that help maintain the city’s cool weather,” Domogan said.

He said that the P5M earmarked by the Fil-Am Golf Foundation for the Busol fencing project was not used for the purpose, thus, he requested the foundation through its president Robert John Sobrepeña to allow the use of the funds to fence the Camp 8 Watershed, one of the watersheds in the city.

He said the local government is grateful to the DENR, BRM, and private partners like the Fil-Am Golf Foundation for their support to environmental preservation and protection programs and projects.

Domogan said that aside from the fencing of watersheds, concerned government agencies, the city government, and private sector partners are also strengthening the reforestation of other reservations to increase the forest cover and help contribute in efforts to improve the supply of water.

The other watersheds in the city are Buyog Watershed within the Quirino Hill and Pinget areas, Lucnab Watershed, Camp John Hay forest reservation, Forbes Park forest reservation, Crystal Cave Watershed, and the Sto. Tomas forest reservation.

Domogan urged different sectors in the city to actively participate in the efforts to preserve and protect the different forest reservations by planting agro-forestry trees not only in the watersheds but also in their backyards.
