Gov. Arthur Yap this morning inaugurated his administration’s first coin-operated neighborhood waterworks system in barangay Guinobatan, Trinidad.

A P5 coin is fed/inserted into the machine and water flows from the faucet enough to fill up two containers with a total capacity of 40 liters.

The project is a Salintubig water system rehabilitation under the Acccessible, Reliable and Timelt (ART) Water for All Program of the province.

Yap was joined in the ceremony by Mayor Judith Cajes, Vice Mayor Manuel Garcia, former 2nd Dist. Rep. Roberto Cajes, Bohol Environment and Management Office Head Tata Ganub, Guinobatan captain Esteban Ibaoc, and 19 other barangay captains. 

Guinobatan just started the line of six barangays which are first in the initial implementation of the ART Water for All Program in Trinidad.

The five other barangays are La union, Kinan-oan, Tagum Norte, Sto. Tomas, Hinlayagan Ilaud and Banlasan.

Since it is coin-assisted, the water facility generates revenue for the barangays and municipalities.

Yap said water is not just a basic daily need but also essential to prevent COVID-19 as it is necessary to maintaining hygiene and sanitation. (Ven rebo Arigo)
