Wednesday, November 9, 2022 - 16:00

NIA Region IV-A conducts 5-Day Intensive Material Testing and Quality Control on November 7 to 11 at NIA IV-A Training Center, Pila Laguna.

Said activity is part of the Agency's preparation in the creation of its own Material Testing Laboratory which aims to facilitate quality implementation of various irrigation projects.

NIA IV-A Principal Engineer Romulo Angeles highlights the importance of quality materials in constructing irrigation structures and facilities. He mentioned that the Project-In-Charge (PIC) must have necessary knowledge on proper handling, storage, and utilization of construction materials.

“Very Timely itong training natin kasi on-going na yung construction ng ating material testing laboratory na kung saan magiging part ito ng ating investment para mas mapalakas natin ang ating project implementation”, he added.

Regional Manager Wilson Lopez reiterates that this training will enhance the NIA technical personnel, specifically the Project-In-Charge, in dealing with technical knowledge on construction materials and testing operations.

“Maganda na kita natin na dumadaan talaga sa quality control yung mga construction materials na ginagamit natin. Malaki ang pakinabang nito para maiwasan natin ang mabilis na pagkasira ng mga irrigation facilities at structures dulot ng iba’t-ibang factors tulad ng bagyo at lindol”, he said.

RM Lopez also shares that the upcoming Material Testing Laboratory in the region has also a potential for an income generation of the Agency.

The Agency believes that this activity will promote efficient solutions to the actual problems being encountered during the construction of irrigation canals and other appurtenant structures which in turn ensure durable and operational irrigation systems in the region.

Nagtungo sina Regional Manager Wilson Lopez at Quezon IMO Manager Edwin Nazareno kasama ang iba pang opisyal ng National Irrigation Administration IV-A sa Tiaong, Quezon para personal na mabisita at malaman ang kalagayan ng patuloy na implementasyon ng Quipot Irrigation Project.

Kabilang sa naging aktibidad ng grupo ang pamamahagi ng mga centrifugal water pumps sa mga magsasaka at Irrigator’s Associations (IAs) na sakop ng Quipot Irrigation Project.

Ito ay bahagi ng mabilis na pagtugon ng pamunuan ng Region IV-A sa adhikain ni NIA Administrator Benny Antiporda na gumawa ng paraan para pansamantalang maalalayan ang magsasaka na umaasa sa nalalapit na pagtatapos ng nasabing proyekto.

“Napaka-supportive po ng ating NIA Administrator Antiporda sapagkat hindi pa man po fully natatapos ang Quipot IP at hindi pa lahat ng inyong mga sakahan ay naaabot ng patubig ay gusto na ng ating Action Man na kayo ay masuportahan,” mensahe ni RM Lopez.

Nasa may sampung (10) water pumps ang pinamahagi ng NIA IV-A bilang “Quick Response” nito sa mga magsasaka na naapektuhan din ng nagdaang bagyo at bilang augmentation na din para ma-abot pa rin ng sistema ang 200% cropping intensity sa may 50 ektaryang service area ng Lateral A Extra 1. Sakop nito ang apat (4) na mga baranggay sa Tiaong, Quezon at isang (1) barangay sa Candelaria, Quezon.

Bukod sa water pumps ay bibigyan din ng subsidiya ng Ahensya ang mga magsasaka para sa gastos sa diesel at gasolina hanggang Disyembre ngayong taon upang epektibo na mapatakbo ang mga nasabing pumps at mapataas ang kanilang mga ani at kita.
