Potable water is a right - DILG Usec. Iringan

ALABEL, Sarangani (April 21, 2022) – Usec. Marlon Iringan, Department of the Interior and Local Government Undersecretary for local government, speaks before locals and guests on April 19 during the groundbreaking ceremony of ELCAC projects at Purok 12-Dacera, Barangay Domolok. “Water is life, more importantly potable water is a right. Ito po ay karapatan ng bawat mamamayan na mabigyan ng potable water at sa tingin namin, ang inyong matagal nang pangarap na magkaroon ng source of potable water, magkakaroon na ng katuparan sa pamamagitan ng proyektong ito,” Iringan said during the ground-breaking of four ELCAC-funded projects which include the construction of level II potable water supply systems in Purok Datal Conde, Purok 5-Baldange, and Purok Datal Mutag, and a farm-to-market road concreting project in Upper Domolok going to Tinago Latian, including a provincial government-funded water system project in Purok 12-Dacera. Iringan also encouraged the locals, especially the beneficiaries, to take good care of the projects that were given to them. “Kailangan protektahan natin ang mga proyektong ito dahil ang layon lang naman ng NTF-ELCAC ay ang maayos at mabilis na pagkaka-implement ng mga projects na ito, dahil alam natin na talagang makikinabang ang mga tao dito,” he said. He also congratulated the 544 households or the more or less 2,700 beneficiaries of the projects. “I do believe these projects are worth more than 20 million in terms of the benefit that our people will gain from it,” Iringan added.
