The largest irrigation dam in Mindanao will be given to NIA by DavOr.
The National Irrigation Administration will shortly receive control of the Davao Oriental province government’s largest irrigation project in Mindanao (NIA).
Governor Corazon Malanyaon said in a statement that the provincial administration made the decision to transfer the Cateel Irrigation Project (CIP) and its management to NIA in order to maximize the operation of the dam and assist the province’s initiatives to increase rice sufficiency.
Malanyaon said the province administration is sure that the facility would operate to its maximum capacity for the benefit of nearby farmers because NIA has the resources and technical know-how to maintain the dam.
The province’s objective of establishing food security through rice sufficiency, she noted, depends on the dam’s complete operation.
The CIP, which is funded by the Mindanao Rural Development Program, would supply 11 barangays and 1,600 hectares of eligible land with long-term irrigation water.
Typhoon Pablo caused the construction of the dam to stop in November 2011. It was finally finished in 2014.
The infrastructure was the final major undertaking of the 15-year Mindanao development program, with a PHP498 million expenditure.
Given that it was a legacy project of ours, it was urgent to transfer management of the project to the agency, according to Malanyaon, despite the fact that the province is currently facing financial difficulties.
Due to the epidemic, the province would experience a PHP400 million budget reduction from its part of the national income this year.
