This is a continuation of the Aftermath of Typhoon Seniang Article. Here, BCWD will also cite their long term plans.

Due to the adverse impact of the illegal activities, the Taguibo Watershed is now vulnerable to any type of natural or man-made calamities.


The resiliency of the watershed against natural or man-made calamities is now dwindling as evidently manifested by frequent occurrence of flashflood and drought during long dry spell.

An example of such calamity is the Tropical Storm Seniang on December 29, 2014 which caused great damage to the Taguibo Watershed.

Flashfloods and landslides from different areas within the watershed occurred particularly on the road upgrading of the Pianing-Tandag Road at Sitio Iyao to Sitio Tagkiling, Barangay Anticala. 

LONG TERM PLANS

1. PPP Bulk Water Supply Project

BCWD will request Taguibo Aquatec Solutions Corporation (TASC) to speed up the bulk water supply project so it will be able to supply water by June this year.

2. Look for Other Source in the Western Side of Agusan River. 

BCWD will look for alternative water source in the western side of Agusan River, probably Bit-os, Mayapay and Buenavista.

3. Extension of 200m3 ground tank in Brgy. Pinamanculan


4. Construction of 500m3 ground tank in Km. 6, Libertad


5. Rehabilitation of the 1,000-cu.m. concrete reservoir at Bonbon.
