Puerto Princesa City, Palawan - National Irrigation Administration (NIA) MIMAROPA Regional Manager Ronilio M. Cervantes and Palawan Irrigation Management Office (IMO) Division Manager Armando L. Flores have inspected the ongoing repair of the diversion dam of the Inagawan Communal Irrigation System (CIS) in Puerto Princesa City to ensure reliable irrigation service to 171 farmer-members of the Inagawan-Kamuning Irrigators Service Association.

This initiative is intended to refurbish infrastructure to provide continuous and uninterrupted irrigation services to an expanse of 240 hectares of agricultural land.

The repair work on the diversion dam was initiated following the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for Easement of Right of Way (ROW) between NIA MIMAROPA and the Bureau of Corrections-Iwahig Prison and Penal Farm (BuCor-IPPF) on August 24, 2023.

The NIA MIMAROPA continues its mission to boost agricultural productivity by developing efficient irrigation systems that contribute towards sustainable growth and improved livelihoods of the farmers in the region.
