P13.25-M water system benefits thousands in Surigao del Norte


SURIGAO CITY, Philippines – Thousands of village folk are in jubilant mood as the government inaugurated the newly built P13.25-million water supply system that started functioning in one of Surigao del Norte’s booming town in the fast-growing province of Surigao del Norte.

This newly built water supply system is located in the municipality of Alegria.

The water system project is part of the government’s Level III-Water Supply System (LWSS) program which will provide safe drinking water to nine target barangays.

The project is enrolled by the local government unit of Alegria to the Millennium Development Goals Fund (MDG Fund) through the Municipal Development Fund Office of the Department of Finance (MDFO-DOF).

Region XIII DILG Regional Director Atty. Rene K. Burdeos said funding constraints on the part of low-income Local Government Units (LGUs) is viewed as a stumbling block to the concrete and meaningful attainment of the MDGs.

Burdeos said the Municipal Development Fund Office (MDFO) of the Department of Finance (DOF) and the DILG has initiated the establishment of a separate lending facility that offers concessional financing for LGUs to fast track the localization of MDGs.
