During the turn-over ceremony led by PENR Officer for Cebu Cleo Cary Colis, he expressed the commiment of the DENR to continuously collaborate with the local government and other partners not only in the successful, effective and efficient maintenance of the infrastructure giving better quality of life to the community but also to generally ensure the protection and conservation of the environment and natural resources.

"Let us work together in making Dalaguete a model in sustainable forest management," said PENRO Colis during his message.

The program was also graced by Dalaguete Mayor Hon. Ronald Allan G. Cesante, CENR Officer for South Cebu Aniceto M. Aquino and members of the Barangay Council of Barangay Tabon, Dalaguete Cebu.

In his acceptance message, Tabon Barangay Captain Saturnino A. Gelardo expressed his joy on the completion of the water impounding system that would help address the scarcity of available clean water in the area and other neighbouring communities.

Responding to Brgy. Capt. Gelardo’s message is CENR Officer Aquino’s warm assurance to the community that DENR through CENRO Argao will be a consistent partner in promoting effective watershed management and sustainable development in the area.

After the turn-over, the DENR represented by PENRO Colis and CENRO Aquino inked a Memorandum of Agreement with Dalaguete Mayor Cesante to ensure effective and sustainable management of the water tank facility.
