NIA Inaugurates P70-million worth of Hapid Irrigation System Diversion Dam Structures

Friday, October 9, 2020 - 13:24

 

NIA CAR – Under the leadership of Administrator Ricardo R. Visaya, the National Irrigation Administration – Cordillera Administrative Region (NIA-CAR) inaugurated P70-million worth of newly completed diversion dam structures of the Hapid Irrigation System (Hapid IS) located in the Municipality of Lamut, Ifugao on October 01, 2020.

The inauguration ceremony was led by Hon. Solomon Chungalao, Representative of the Lone District of Ifugao, Provincial Governor Jerry Dalipog, NIA-CAR Regional Manager Benito Espique, Jr., and NIA Ifugao Satellite Office Head Patrick Resurreccion. The event was witnessed by other local officials, regional heads of other agencies, NIA employees, and farmer-beneficiaries.

Hapid IS used to have a gravity intake-type diversion dam which draws irrigation water from the Ibulao River. With the completion of the diversion dam on May 08, 2020, irrigation service delivery is more reliable and efficient. The project covers 11 barangays of Lamut, Ifugao, benefitting 1,500 farmers and their families. To date, the irrigated area of the system is pegged at 1,040 hectares which is the targeted area for this wet cropping season.

Engr. Patrick Resurreccion said that the irrigated area can still increase because water is more sufficient with the completion of the diversion dam.

NIA Top Management Officials, headed by Administrator Visaya, assured that the Agency remains committed its mandate of providing efficient, reliable, and sustainable irrigation service to the Filipino farmers, the backliners of the country’s battle against COVID-19 Pandemic.
