Septage

Thank God, the internet service in our house was back yesterday afternoon.

The Philippine Sanitation Alliance will hold a seminar-workshop today on “Developing a Comprehensive Program for Septage Management in Davao City.” The program is organized by the Davao City Water District with fund support from the USAID.

Septage? Check this entry at wikipedia.

About a decade ago, the water utility firm was also a recipient of fund support from foreign aid agencies on the sewerage system for the city. Nothing, unfortunately, came out of it. The same can be said of its plans for the Tamugan River as source of surface water. The National Water Resource Board granted it permit ten years ago, but nothing has been done about it.

I’m attending this seminar today but I’m crossing my fingers where it would lead us to … given the track record of DCWD, which is long on plans but short on action.

    Peter, wait for DCWD to do something? Remember during the DCBC, I asked Vice Sara on the plans for this as we only seem to address the drainage issue. Why wait for DCWD? Why o Why?
