WQMA Board to highlight water quality management in schools

Dr. Resurreccion B. Sadaba, WQMA - Governing Board Member and academe representative, highlights the various possible approaches on how to intensify campaign on water quality management among members, particularly on septage management.

The Water Quality Management Area (WQMA) Governing Board is strengthening its campaign on water quality management by targeting the academe – providing visuals and lectures to primary, secondary and even tertiary level students.

The DENR-Environmental Management Bureau conducted a one-day Trainer’s Training for the Information, Education, Communication (IEC) Campaign on WQMA to advance approaches on water quality management in the communities on Monday, July 21.

Dr. Resurreccion B. Sadaba, WQMA Governing Board Member and academe representative, said that it is very important that the target audience could easily comprehend the message being conveyed which they could later put into practice.

DENR EMB Regional Director Atty. Jonathan P. Bulos, who chairs the Board, said that the activity aims to equip the members of ample knowledge prior to their conduct of lectures and IEC campaign to raise the level of awareness of students and/or their respective communities.

The WQMA Governing Board comprises the representatives from different civil society groups, utilities sector, business sector, local government units, national government agencies, and non-government organizations.

One of the topics that shall be discussed to the students and communities is the importance of septic tanks in households, how it affects water quality in rivers and its tributaries, and how to address these problems.

Prior to the training, EMB Environmental Quality Division Chief Dr. Samson J. Guillergan discussed the salient points of the Clean Air Act and other related laws and regulations on water quality management.

The Board shall start the lecture series at the Iloilo Central Elementary School and Iloilo National High School in August and September and in the municipalities of Oton and San Miguel in October.
