Twenty-three more groups are expected to receive the same this year. (Jojo Riñoza)

Lingayen, Pangasinan — Rebuilding and rehabilitation work on old and damaged irrigation systems in Pangasinan farmlands will be pushed through, Governor Amado I. Espino, III announced the other day.

Gov. Espino said  Thursday with certainty as he cited Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP or Provincial Board) Provincial Resolution No. 477-2017, which authorizes him to enter into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the benefit of Pangasinan farmers.

The provincial resolution, passed last January 23, allows the governor to enter into a MOA with irrigation project beneficiaries for the implementation of the rehabilitation and construction of various irrigation systems all over Pangasinan.

Authored by Board Members Noel C. Bince and Liberato Z. Villegas, the resolution states that the MOA will serve as a “vehicle for collaboration efforts between the Provincial Government and Irrigators’ Association, Farmers Association and Fisherfolks project beneficiaries to promote and develop the sustainability of irrigation projects of the province.”

Now, the government may apply their resources and assets for productive development or welfare purposes of the farmers, Espino said.

These include the construction or rehabilitation of a Communal Irrigation System (CIS)/Pump Irrigation System (PIS)/Installation of Shallow Tube Well Irrigation Project (STWIP), Small Impounding Project (SWIP), and Small Farm Reservoir (SFR).
