Going with the flow

Homegrown water company Richli Corp., recently started construction of a water treatment facility in Barangay Patrocinio, Cortes, 32 km northwest of Panglao Island. For a long time, Bohol has had problems with its existing water sources -- an increased incidence of cholera and kidney stones — that has  hampered development of Panglao Island. 

The 1.5 billion project will source water from the Malingin River and distribute bulk water to towns in Bohol, including Tagbilaran, Panglao, and Andaois.

 The facility will cover an initial output of 10,000 cubic meters of water per day and is expected to reach a peak target of 25,000 cubic meters per day. This is good enough to supply potable water to 10,000 - 15,000 households. 

At the launch were Richli Corp. chairman Richard Lim (third from left), Tourism secretary Wanda Teo, office of the presidential assistant for the Visayas secretary Michael Diño, and local government officials. The water treatment facility will be operational by August 2018.
