P4.527-B NIA pond in Pangasinan nears finish
WEDNESDAY, 25 JULY 2012 19:15 ORLY GUIRAO / CORRESPONDENT
SAN MANUEL, Pangasinan—The standoff in the Panatag Shoal of the Kalayaan Group of Islands, a maritime territory claimed by both China and the Philippines, is not in any way affecting the completion of the 85-hectare irrigation reservoir of the 560-megawatt multipurpose San Roque power dam here. The reservoir costs P4.527 billion.
Already 95-percent complete, preparations are underway for the inauguration of the facility being built mainly from a $89.1-million soft loan with China Export-Import Bank.
The Chinese contractor, China Camce Engineering Ltd., which won the bidding at a contract price of $93.8 million, is now rushing up the installation of the electrical and mechanical systems for the giant pond’s valve gates and spillways, Reynaldo Mencias, project manager of the Agno River Integrated Irrigation Program (ARIIP), told the BusinessMirror. ARIIP is an adjunct agency of the Department of Agriculture.
“Except for the twin vital systems, the design of which was recently revised to conform with the volume of water intake and release, all major infrastructure works have been completed,” Mencias said.
The re-regulating pond that is expected to fully irrigate 34,450 hectares of farmlands on opposite banks of the Agno River covered under ARIIP will be commissioned in December 2012 in time for the second cropping season, Mencias said.
Once operational, the pond will increase crop yield and cropping intensity by 150 percent, according to a study by ARIIP.
The contractor started works on the project in early 2010 and latest reports said $80.02 million has been spent in finishing the sprawling pond structure, upstream Ogle weir, dam intakes, spillway and operation house buildings on both banks of the river.
Using the national government’s counterpart fund of P6.698 billion, ARIIP is rushing up the rehabilitation of 67.06 kilometers of existing main irrigation canals, along with 327.85 kilometers of lateral canals.
Some 280 kilometers of farm-to-market roads are also in simultaneous rehabilitation works in anticipation of the increased farming activities within ARIIP’s service area covering 28,207 farm families in 18 towns of Pangasinan.
At a total cost of P11.2 billion, ARIIP as an irrigation component of the San Roque multipurpose dam, started in November 2006. The project is expected to go on full-swing services on or before December 2013 with the completion of rehabilitation works on all of ARIIP’s facilities.
“As a reservoir, the re-regulating pond augments the dam’s flood prevention component as it will store 5 million cubic meters of water siphoned from the main dam structure,” Mencias said, adding the stored volume of water will be released for irrigation via the pond’s sluice way at an average of 300 cu. meter per second.
With the reservoir, the provincial government intends to siphon water from the facility to solve a water crisis now gripping households in 20 coastal towns of the province.
Provincial Administrator Rafael Baraan said a memorandum of agreement signed recently with the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) will allow the flow of at least 5 cu. cm. of water from the reservoir to the Pangasinan Bulk Water Supply Project which the provincial government has committed to build.
Under the scheme, the siphoned water will be rationed out to houses in towns and cities whose deep wells are now fast drying up and severely affected by salt-water intrusion.
On top of everything, Mencias said the reservoir will be a stable source of water needed in palay production, vegetable growing and root-crop farming.
Pangasinan villagers give go-signal to golf course

11:40 pm | Tuesday, July 10th, 2012
LINGAYEN, Pangasinan—Residents of four coastal villages here have given the provincial government the go-signal to start construction of an 18-hole golf course in their villages.
The Lingayen golf course project was suspended in January by the Environmental Management Bureau for lack of an environmental compliance certificate (ECC).
The golf course spans 38 hectares and will cover the coastal villages of Sabangan, Estanza, Malimpuec and Capandanan here.
Five hundred residents of these villages voted in favor of proceeding with the golf course at a public consultation in Guesang Elementary School here, which was the last of a series of meetings started in March to fulfill the prerequisites for obtaining an ECC.
Sabangan village chief Hector Fabiana said there were people who opposed the project, which was supported by Gov. Amado Espino, but he described them as “a handful.” He said their concerns had been adequately explained at the forums.
“They were opposing the project because they were fed wrong information about it. But now, it’s very clear to them, especially the benefits that our barangay will get from it,” Fabiana said.
Residents have feared that their water supply would be depleted once the golf course operates. A golf course needs a steady supply of water for its fairways, tees and greens.
But an environmental impact assessment (EIA) study conducted by the Ajanta Consultancy and Technical Services Inc. (Actsi) said the golf course would require only about 1,000 cubic meters of water a day.
Gregorio Palis, Actsi president, said three lagoons, which can store 30,500 cubic meters of water, would be built to meet the water demand of the golf course.
Cesar Siador Jr., chief of EMB’s EIA management division, said the dialogue would serve as reference when the agency deliberates on the golf course’s ECC application.
He welcomed the “outpouring of support” for the project from residents and officials of the four villages. “This is a manifestation of the people’s acceptance of the project,” he said.
The golf course, which is estimated to cost P202.2 million, is part of an ecotourism zone proclaimed by President Fidel Ramos in 1997. Gabriel Cardinoza, Inquirer Northern Luzon
International group commends Pangasinan ITax system
International group commends Pangasinan ITax system
LINGAYEN, Pangasinan, July 8 (PNA)– Gessellschaft for Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), an international group based in Dumaguete City, commended the Pangasinan provincial government for its no-nonsense implementation of the Integrated Tax Management System (ITax).
The group, composed of 20 personnel, visited the ITAX Data Center at Kalantiao Building at the Capitol Compound here as part of their two-day educational tour and team building last July 3 and 4.
Headed by their team manager, Juergen Seelman, the group hailed the provincial government for fully supporting the project, which is now about 93 percent accomplished.
The GIZ team manager expressed optimism that the computerization scheme is useful and a welcome development to the province, which is now ranked as the fifth best local government unit in the country especially in areas of real property collection.
The system uses the Real Property Module, which is a computerized version of processes and transactions.
Modesto Singson, Management Information Service Officer, said that instead of using manual labor, LGUs now use a more comprehensive computerize scheme to eliminate time-consuming service hassles that taxpayers often experience every time they hold transactions.
Singson said that the province has just finished with their payment posting of three LGUs (Labrador, Rosales and Mapandan) while tax payments of the LGU of Dasol is now also currently being posted.
Integrated tax is an incorporated software which is bundled with taxpayer module as the focal module, and thematic modules such as RPT, business permits and licensing among others.(PNA)
