On January 14, 2020, Mahintana Foundation Inc. represented by Project Coordinator Ms. Ella Mae Babao and Project Officer Mr. Jeric Amparo collected water samples at the spring source in Purok 8, Kinilis, Polomolok, South Cotabato. The team was accompanied by Mr. Boyet Buan, a local guide.
Ms. Babao opted to collect water sample from the existing water collection tank because the natural spring is situated between two large boulders. The collected water in the sterile bottle was immediately delivered to Department of Science and Technology (DOST) XII – Regional Standards and Testing Laboratory (RSTL) Satellite Laboratory. The results will determine if the water source is potable or needs to be treated.
This water system rehabilitation project is funded by Coca-Cola Foundation Philippines Inc.
