GOVERNMENT entities and occupants of the built-up portions of the Buyog watershed have agreed to protect and preserve what remains of the forest reservation as a requisite to the planned disposition for housing purposes of the occupied areas.

Some 745 occupants of the United Pinget Homeowners Association will sign a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the City Government under Mayor Mauricio Domogan and City Council committee on lands chair Leandro Yangot Jr., the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR)-Cordillera under Regional Executive Director Ralph Pablo, and Baguio Water District (BWD) under general manager Salvador Royeca.

SINCE the demolition of informal settlers inside the Busol watershed seems to be impossible due to several factors, the fencing was seen to minimize the risk of building new structures in the area.

Department of Natural Resources Regional Director Ralph Pablo told Sun.Star the agency is looking to complete the fencing within the year.

Implementers of the Busol watershed fencing project expressed fears the project may not be able to meet the June 30 target completion due to slow work progress.

In the regular Baguio Regreening Movement meeting on Tuesday, Department of Environment and Natural Resources Cordillera representative Marilyn Malecdan reported that while the perimeter fencing construction is ongoing as far as their assigned spans is concerned, it is moving on slowly because the contractor has yet to heed their request to add more workers to finish the fencing. The request was made in April after it was reported by the monitoring team that only few were seen working on the spans within the site.
