PPMC monitors Level II Water System Project

By Aimee B. Sienes

BUTUAN CITY, May 31 (PIA) - The Provincial Project Monitoring Committee (PPMC) of Agusan del Norte, headed by Atty. Ramie Felmon Duropan, conducted an onsite project monitoring of the Barangay Hydraulic Water Ram Pump Water System Project at Barangay Lawan-lawan, municipality of Las Nieves, this province on May 26, 2015.

This project calls for the construction/installation of Ram Pump water system classified as a Level II Facility. Hydraulic Ram Pumps are motorless or fuelless water pumping devices that are powered by falling water. The pump works by using the energy of substantial amount of water falling to a small height to lift a small amount of water to a much greater height.

In this way, water from a spring in a valley can be pumped to a village or irrigation scheme on the hillside. The source of water comes from the spring near Ojot River. The water is conveyed by using pipelines. The sizes of the pipelines depend on the capacity of the water. The water system is accessible through public faucets or tapstands. This project is implemented in Barangay Lawan-lawan in Las Nieves and Barangay Simbalan in Buenavista, covering Sitios Lekda, Banagbanag and Antonio.

The Level II Water System Project was made possible through the efforts of Gov. Ma. Angelica Rosedell M. Amante-Matba, Barangay Captain More H. Migduyan of Barangay Lawan-lawan and Eddie “Datu Bawang” S. Ampiyawan, president of Higaonon Water System Association. (LGU-Agusan del Norte/PIA-Agusan del Norte)
