Water flows at the Buguias RHU, benefits over 6,000 households

DILG Benguet PD Rufina T. Fegcan and Buguias MLGOO Aida T. Palitog with local officials during the inauguration of the Buguias RHU water system.

 

“Free and safe water for all” is now flowing to serve the people of Buguias, Benguet. Through the DILG-funded Sagana at Ligtas naTubig Para Sa Lahat (SALINTUBIG) Project, over 6,000 households in the locality and users of the Rural Health Unit (RHU) for which the Project was primarily built can now have access to potable water.

 

The Project was inaugurated and turned over to the LGU in Loo, Buguias on October 31, 2013. Despite the looming threat of Typhoon Vinta, local officials and community folks here gathered for the occasion. To them, the Project brought sunshine amidst the rains. 

 

“Mayat baw na ay proyekto. Dakdake ay iyaman mi” (This project is good. We are grateful), Punong Barangay Dionisio C. Badian of Loo, the oldest Punong Barangay in the Municipality who was present at that time said in his local dialect expressing how thankful he was for such a project in his Barangay.

 

Mayor Melchor D. Diclas said, “we are so grateful for this project funded by the DILG. We hope for more similar projects to be implemented here,” as he addressed the DILG and other concerned NGAs.

 

PD Rufina Fegcan, the guest of honor and DILG representative to the occasion, put up both a commendation and a challenge. “I congratulate the local officials of Buguias for accomplishing this project,” she said because of the challenges met during the project implementation that caused its suspension on April 8, 2013. Dispute on road right of way surfaced but was resolved amicably in favor of what is just and beneficial for all. The project resumed on Aug. 15, 2013 until its completion on Oct. 22, 2013. “It is now your responsibility to sustain it” PD Fegcan added, stressing that the LGU along with the users have now the responsibility of maintaining and sustaining the project, all for their own benefit.

 

The DILG allocated a total of PhP 1M for this project entitled “Construction of Buguias RHU Deep Well Submersible Water Pump.” Buguias was identified for the SALINTUBIG Project because of the recorded incidence of waterborne diseases by the RHU.

 

Now, generating about 24 gallons of water per minute, the Project is expected to benefit the RHU patients or over 6,000 households in the locality and put a marked decrease in the incidence of waterborne diseases.# Aida T. Palitog, DILG Benguet
