Restoring the former watershed in Barangays Salvacion, Camansihay, Cabalawan, Sto. Niño, Tigbao, and other areas in the northern part of Tacloban City is part of our various programs and activities in order to bring back the flourishing flow of waters in Camansihay, Baruguan, Tigbao, Kawayan, and other rivers found at the northern part of Tacloban City.” LMWD general manager Pastor A. Homeres said.

 

The rehabilitation and restoration of the watershed in Tacloban North is a tough task that needs serious attention and implementation of rigorous programs and projects that will address and sustain the present and future water supply requirement of the fast-growing population or community within LMWD service coverage.

 

Accordingly, LMWD through its Gender and Development Program (GAD) and in partnership with the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (City ENRO), the Local Government Unit of Tacloban and the barangays in Tacloban North as well as the Population Commission (PopCom) Regional Office 8 have started the initial activities that will eventually lead to the realization of this ambitious and long-term goal of our agency.

 

Last November 24, 25 & 26, 2021 the members of LMWD GAD committee held a 3-day forum in Tacloban North City Hall Extension Office located at Brgy. Sto. Niño, Tacloban City concerning the “Role of Women in nation building by being responsive and responsible parent; cum Women as indispensable partner in the conservation of water to sustain its availability from generations thru generations.” The forum was attended by more or less 150 participants coming from the various Yolanda Relocation Villages in Tacloban North.

 

The abovementioned activity will be followed immediately with the conduct of Tree Growing and Riverside Clean-up works in Barangays Camansihay and Cabalawan, Tacloban City on December 9, 2021.

 

LMWD in partnership with Primewater is supplying potable water to all its concessionaires coming from the city of Tacloban and the municipalities of Palo, Tanauan, Tolosa, Tabontabon, Dagami, Pastrana, and Sta. Fe all in the province of Leyte. | LMWD Public Relation Office
