Another squatting problem in La Trinidad, Benguet. This time it will affect not only the main water source of Barangay Alapang but also adjacent baranggays benefiting from it.
Alapang Communal Forest is located in Alapang, La Trinidad, Benguet. In due time, if we allow this to continue, Barangay Alapang Multipurpose Cooperative (BALMUCO), a water supplier in barangay Alapang and other baranggays, will source out clean water outside its territory which will negatively affect many households.
If you are concern with this matter, please spread this neglected news while there is time and let us force the Local Government of La Trinidad, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and other government bodies with jurisdiction to immediately act while it is not too late.
