One-Third of Bohol Towns Without Water
« on: March 13, 2009, 04:12:36 PM »
Editorial of the Bohol Chronicle

"Waterless municipalities", according to NAPC (National Anti-Poverty Commission), are those towns where less than 50% of HH (Households) have access to potable water.

There are currently 432 "waterless" towns in the country, 16 of which are located in Bohol-rivers, lakes and waterfalls, notwithstanding. There are also 210 such communities in Metro Manila, according to NAPC.

As of 2008, according to statistics, only 36.6% of Bohol HH have access to potable water or 32,884 HH of the 89,816 HH total. This 36.6% is below the national total of 46.32% HH with water access.

Those in Bohol with High Access (40-49%) but nonetheless below 50% access rate to water include: Loon (48%), Pilar (46%), Sevilla (46%), Ubay (43%) and Buenavista (40%).

Those with Medium Access (20-39%) access to potable water are: Ben Unido (33%), Catigbian (21%), Carmen (36%), Inabanga (35%), Jetafe (28%), San Miguel (34%).
Those with Low Access (20% and below): Buenavista (14%), Pitogo (14%), Talibon (19%) and Trinidad (7.5%).

Tagbilaran City and some parts of nearby Baclayon and Dauis are adequately serviced by the private-run Bohol Waterworks Utilities Inc. (BWUI) while the rest of the towns are run by their own municipal water systems.

The above is not too encouraging news for the province as water is essential to life and basic to minimum sanitation. There are of course current efforts of water system development to provide this basic necessity to Boholanos but we should stop entertaining silly ideas to sell the precious mineral to neighboring Cebu before our province mates.

Of total Philippine HH of 2,486,261 only 1,151,701 are classified as having a plus 50% of HH accessed to potable water.

That is the reason "Water Provision" is one of the priority goals of the government and an anti-poverty advocacy.

To get 50% of HH in the country to have potable water, water supply and sanitation facilities must be increased by 87%, according to Millenium Goal of government.

Municipalities who cannot wait for the Bohol "mega water projects" to be in place can still write to WASCO (Water & Sanitation Coordinating Office) NAPC 3/Floor ATI Bldg., Eliptical Road, Diliman, Quezon City for project proposals.

Baseline information (basic) is needed like: current water coverage level, projected cost of water project, and program of work. Co-implementors with the municipalities of the water project could include NGO's, water districts or water cooperatives. Likewise, it appears that the DPWH (Department of Public Works and Highways) can actually provide counter-part funding versus the finances provided by the LGUs.

We have always taken the position that government must ab initio take a pro-active stance as the provider of Boholano's basic needs: food, water, heath and shelter before mega projects whose pro-poor impact is not that immediate. For poor Juan de la Cruz, time is a luxury he cannot afford.

             The government must bring enough program for water supply in the given town.

Hoping that by 2012, 100% of Bohol towns will have potable water system

sa balilihan, ok ra ang supply sa tubig kay hangtud naman kini sa kabaryohan. naa lay mga baryo nga wala pa naabti kay medyo layo sad unya pila lang unya ang magpataod ug metro kay tungod lagi pud sa kawad-on.

if bohol will continue to cut its trees and do not engage in a serious and meaningful reforestation program, people can rest assured that in a few years, all bohol towns will achieve 00% potable water supply.

"tinuod ba jud nang sige putol ug kahoy sa bohol? sa akong tan-aw pwerte pa man bagaa sa kalasangan diha."

i'm not really sure about the real status of the forest cover in bohol. i'm just saying that IF people continue to cut down trees (which is happening not only in many parts of the philippines but in many parts of the world as well), water supply will be greatly affected in the long term. i'm just assuming that bohol is one of these places where forest cover is poor. in fact, there's a plan by the povincial government and ABS-CBN foundation to collaborate in a reforestation project in 3 of bohol's 6 or seven major watersheds. last time i heard, an aerial survery was conducted. ambot lang kun naunsa na karon.

im not really familiar with the watersheds. where in bohol can it be? as far as the places that i've been to in bohol, i can see more than enough water for the people living those areas. sagbayan, balilihan, catigbian, cortes, corella, loboc, tubigon, maribojoc, loon and antequera.

watersheds simply mean agianan sa tubig uwan from the mountains down to the sea. in other words, a watershed system always involve bodies of water like brooks, streams, and finally rivers that empty out to sea. siguro naa na moy idea karon kung asa dapit ang mga dagkong watersheds sa bohol.

to make any reforestation initiative meaningful and effective, planting of trees should ideally be made in watershed areas. if and when this is done, the improved forest cover will help: (1) improve the quality and quantity of water, (2) mitigate floods and mudslides, (3) sequester tons upon tons of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere which is responsible for global warming.

sa balilihan ug mga kasilinganang lungsod sama sa batuan, catigbian, cortes, antequera, sevilla, sikatuna, corella ug san isidro dunay mga dagkong suba or sapa. in fact ang balilihan, giliyokan ug suba nga murag nahimo nang utlanan sa masig ka lungsod nga akong gihisgotan sa unahan. in fact kanang abatan river, lapos man ngadto sa may viga, antequera ug dorol, balilihan. ang kadtong suba pud diin nahimutang ang hanopol hydro plant sumpay pud na sa suba diin nahimutang ang sevilla hydro plant.
