There is a great certainty that the onset of  El Niño may occur between July to September 2014. El Niño will trigger hot weather and less rain that  subsequently lead to drought in the Philippines. From past occurrences, El Nino may last for several months to almost two years. Such prolonged drought would devastate agriculture and impact water availability for human, industrial and economic consumption.

One of our major projects focuses on water sequestration into ponds to mitigate the impact of El Niño. Even in the absence of El Niño, the long dry season and hot summers in many regions of the Philippines require the availability of ample supply of water.

Integrated Projects Planned for Santo Tomas, Naguilian Farms

Long Term and Integrated Projects. The schematic map above presents a summary of the major EcoCulture projects planned for the Santo Tomas, Naguilian Farms. Some have already been initiated since last year, other s more recently.  Others will require further study and need more funding to initiate.

The focus here are the major infrastructures planned. What cannot be presented in this schematic map are the more complex EcoCulture projects, such as creating biodiverse and ecodiverse systems to create more sustainable and stable EcoCulture systems.

Systematic placement of the proposed water sequestration ponds in the Santo Tomas Farms

Comprehensive proposal for the proposed number and locations of the water sequestration ponds

 Summary: The distributed locations of the ponds considered the complex terrains of the area, consisting of low lands, gentle rolling hills, high and flat hill top, existing local canal system, forested areas, rice fields, cornfields, etc; and, biodiverse vegetation already existing in the area.

 This EcoCulture project aims to collect as much rainwater during the monsoon season to provide as much water that is more scarce during the long dry season, and especially during severe drought during the occurrence of El Nino.

Santo Tomas, Naguilian, Checkered DENR Map for Geolocation Tagging

There are now more than a thousand images for the Santo Tomas Farms EcoCulture projects alone. And there will be more photos, as more EcoCulture projects start and the observations documented,  Proper geolocation tagging would improve the utility of the images. This data will be used by the Design and Engineering Team as well as the Research Team for experimental design and documentation of studies.
