Frustrated Bohol Farmers Bank Hope on Malinao Dam

Frustrated farmer beneficiaries of the multi-billion Malinao Dam in Pilar, Bohol get a new lease of hope for their farmlands to finally get fully irrigated.

Studies are now started to determine if doubling the holding capacity of the multi-million Malinao Dam is feasible, says Governor Erico Aumentado, who met a team of Korean experts recently.

The feasibility study worth $1US dollars is a grant by the Korean Government upon the governor’s request on upgrading the Malinao Dam and enlarging its service area.

Militant farmers calling themselves Panagbugkos Kontra K4 have been openly airing their dismay over the water services of the dam. They still depend on rainfall since they are able to irrigate their fields only during the rainy season, not year-round as expected from the constructed dam.

Concerns over failure to deliver the desired results especially in lands leveled and converted to rice fields but are way beyond the service capacity of the dam still pop as sore issue among farmers.

Malinao Dam, of the Bohol Irrigation Project Phase 1 cost 1.4B yen and was designed to catch the waters off Wahig-Pamacsalan River and irrigate 4,960 hectares of prime rice lands.

The governor said he personally persuaded Korean authorities to fund the study through a grant, when he was in Korea last year, Aumentado reported in his weekly radio program aired over Bohol radio stations.

The governor, who was also instrumental in establishment of the P3.6 billion Malinao Dam, reported his meeting with the representatives from the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KoICA) June 12 night, as an offshoot of his earlier request.
