Turn Over Ceremony of PCF-Assisted Project held In CagwaitJanuary 9, 2013

           The Municipality of Cagwait conducted recently a turn over ceremony of Water System Filtration Equipment, Structures and Pipelines. The occasion was graced with the presence of LGOO VI Ma. Lourdes C. Martinez, Program Manager of DILG Surigao del Sur; Glenn Flores of Texin Inc.; and several officials and functionaries.



           The 14.6-million-peso Water System (Level III) Improvement Project was intended for the development of intake and clarifier structures to minimize the turbidity of water before finer filtration be done. It will hopefully provide potable water to 3,145 households of six barangays (Bacolod, La Purisima, Poblacion, Tubo-tubo, Aras-asan and Unidad).

           However, “the municipality is still waiting for the test to determine if the water is approved by the Department of Health (DOH) for drinking” said Alfredo Lozada, Municipal Economic Enterprise Administrator.

            A portion of the project’s fund worth 1 million pesos was sourced out from the Performance Challenge Fund given by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG). This was utilized as counterpart for the works component of the project, particularly the construction of the filter shed and pipe fittings for the installation of one unit filtration equipment.

            Municipal Mayor Bonifacio G. Ondona expressed his gratitude to the sponsors and partners of the local government unit of Cagwait. He also assured them that the municipality is prompt in the implementation of projects, transparent in the liquidation of funds, and has efficient mechanism (the Project Monitoring Committee) in project implementation.
