Creating a Reservoir by building a Dam
- By: Franklin H. Maletsky, founder of zamboanga.com
At the source of the Tumaga river which is only about 5 kilometers from the barangay of Pasonanca, the river can be dammed. It is naturally bordered by hills and mountains from 200 to 400 meters high.
By doing this the City of Zamboanga will never ever suffer from water shortages. There will be enough water supply even for the farmers.
There is also a possible second benefit. That is electricity from turbines installed.
If the city does not have the budget for this project, I am absolutely positive that private investors will be lined up to put up the dam. This will give Zamboanga City ample supply of water and electricity.
Imagine that! No more black outs and no more water rationing.
This is the proposed area of the Reservoir. Mt. Culumbato (Pulumbato) will be located to the right of the Dam. It is a natural border. The area of the reservoir (LAKE) will be approximately 4 square kilometers. That is a good sized lake that can conserve all the water during the rainy season. No more flooding incidents. No more water rationing. No more blackouts.
