NIA, MAC Builders forge contract for P382M Ibingan Earthfill Dam project
National Irrigation Administration (NIA) and MAC Builders have already signed the deal for the construction of the 381.51-million Ibingan Earthfill Dam and its appurtenant structures under the Small Reservoir Irrigation Project (SRIP).
Ibingan Earthfill Dam, which is located in the Municipality of Prieto Diaz, Sorsogon, aims to provide substantial and timely water supply for irrigation in support to the agricultural development of the province.
The contract includes concreting woks, excavation, reinforcing steel bars, and embankment.
NIA is the government agency responsible in developing all possible sources of water for irrigation.
Just this month, NIA also announced that it is set to start the construction of the P990.37-million Bulo Bulo SRIP, which could irrigate 570 hectares of agricultural lands in Bulacan once finished.
Located at Kalawakan, Doña Remedios Trinidad (DRT) in Bulacan, the project should increase the agricultural production in the area through the provision of irrigation and drainage infrastructures.
