Namatec among brgys with best sanitation
by Alpine L. Killa

A barangay in Sabangan, Mountain Province made it to the national search for barangays with best sanitation practices.

A Gawad Kalusugan Award and P25,625 was recently awarded by the Department of Health-Cordillera to Barangay Namatec last Nov. 17 at the Baguio Country Club.

Punong Barangay William Malamion received the certificate of recognition and cash incentive.

The barangay was qualified for the search for having 100 percent functional toilet facilities in all its households, 100 percent improvement in toilet coverage from 2013 up to present, safe water supply for all households at Level III, 30 percent approved barangay budget for water and sanitation projects and programs for the last two years, 100 percent washing practices in public establishments and schools in the barangay, and 100 percent other local sanitation initiatives such as solid waste management and wastewater management.

Malamion attributed the award to solid community participation.

“The prime reason that we were able to acquire the award was due to the unity of all the residents. Everyone actively involved themselves in general community cleaning activities which we quarterly do.”

In addition, the barangay passed ordinances related to health and sanitation that the barangay officials are strictly implementing like allocation of funds for the construction of a materials recovery facility, formulation of community solid waste management programs and plans, residents accountability to segregation and collection of solid wastes, and trainings on segregation, composting, recycling, monitoring, and enforcement.

Barangay Namatec is also a hall of fame awardee for being the cleanest and greenest barangay in Sabangan.
