Speaking of spillway discharge, wala na kayang way para mastore natin itong excess water by new dams o reservoirs?

Kailangan na ata natin mandate mga rainwater harvest collection sa mga biz establishment / malls / others...Sayang na sayang kasi yung tubeg eh, panigurado 2020 water crisis will be worse.

Yup. They should also put a focus on water conservation.

Sure yung water crisis sa 2020 pag hinarang yung Kaliwa Dam project ng mga Dilawan at Komunista.

I think the spillway discharge from Angat Dam is already being collected downstream at Ipo Dam... And ultimately in La Mesa Dam.

Wala pang ECC. They were hoping to get one last month, but it seems like it's going to get pushed back even farther.

I think one of the main and biggest stumbling blocks to that ECC is ancestral domain approval.

Eh na infiltrate na ata sila ng Kaliwang grupo, kaya...

In some countries, they have water collection barrels in every home for general use. In Panglao, I saw an expat built house with water cistern. I think the gov't should start incentivizing collection of rain water by individual households, or by local gov't units, like Marikina (from what I read here.) In one country, PNG, I noticed my friends' house had a big barrel connected to the roof for water collection; in Bermuda, every house has a rain barrel to collect water, in southern Germany, friend's family had the same rain barrel to use for their garden. So it's not unusual.

Hindi halos nagalaw ang Angat dam halos naooffset lang ng mga ulan nitong araw yung nawawala tapos babalik din sa critical level..

Kaso etong oposisyon at mga [email protected] na may Sinophobia, na pinapairal ang pride. Paulit ulit every year ang ganitong water crisis kapag walang additional dam. Idaan na lang daw sa prayer kaysa magpaggawa ng additional dam.

I came across this on you tube. It's no wonder that the Belgian dredging contract was cancelled. As I've always thought, the people making reklamo against that project are reklamadores. Lord help the Philippines and Laguna Bay. This reminds me of that subdivision wiped out by Ondoy built on the river basin/bed of the Marikina river.

If we look back at historical precedents, decision-making processes when left out for the public to do, in general, will always be a watered-down decision! The compromises arrived with so many conflicting points of view will remove any sense of innovation in individuals involved and the group will, most of time, arrive at bad choices! That is called the subjugation of one's ideas to accommodate the ideas of others to arrive at a unified front/ decision, IMHO.

In that case, all would be very happy with a dictatorship, if the end-result is having water for everyone! As David Farragut said: "Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!

Your professorial talk doesn't add anything to the point I was trying to make. The Belgian dredging contract was a signed deal, but Penoy cancelled that and we have to pay for cancellation. And who would benefit from the cancellation? As I suspected the reklamadores who are now reclaiming the lake bed. Bahala sila sa buhay nila.

Clark na - NCC is already sprouting. Various NGAs and the Judiciary will have offices there.

Plus NCC is still inside the CSEZ - CRK Airport mere minutes away.

^ Yup. All government departments + congress should be there. Dapat magkatabi yung lower house and senate, tapos yung DOJ in between congress and SC.

Kaso may contract na senate with BGC.

Im not sure. Its still in a typhoon prone area and right next to Pinatubo
Sure, Pinatubo wont erupt for another 400 years, but Bukidnon would surely help spread some development down south and prevent there from being disruptive events like typhoons that could affect the government

Laguna lake imo should be returned to a more natural state, it should be dredged to get rid of all the foreign debris and probably even toxic elements that have built up at the bottom over the decades, the fish pens definitely has to go, after this the lake can be thoroughly rehabilitated and a proper long term development and conservation plan set up .

The lake could then probably become another suitable source of water, a myriad of other forms or new forms of economic activity could then be created there, a Laguna lake ferry system connecting to a Pasig ferry system connecting to a Manila bay ferry system is one example, instead of fish pens there could be touristic recreational fishing activities, other leisure activities like a lake cruise, boat rentals, surfing and eco resorts could dot its shores etc .

Talim island should be turned into a national park along with the lake actually, it could be turned into an open air nature preserve, and people can do day trips to hike or bike around the island, you could have all sorts of outdoor sporting activities as well or even festivals held on the island .

There is a lot of other and imo even more lucrative economic activities to be done on a rehabilitated lake, which then also benefit the people of the ncr by providing them with a nice clean and healthy recreational domain close by, and in time it probably would also draw international tourism .

Yes, regardless, that is part and parcel of an EIA, including impact on the inhabitants, locals, culture, society etc etc etc. Unlike, the Bulakan airport ECC which was kinda quick, too quick isn't it? EIA takes awhile esp in places where there are indigenous communities, pristine natural environment.
