The Proceedings of the Third Philippines Water Congress, sponsored by the Philippine Water Works Association, revolved around the topic "Government and Private Partnership in Water Supply". Nine full-length papers are presented in the report. Two are technical; one covers handpump and handpumped well maintenance, and the other field jointing of water pipelines. A case history for further development of the Angat River includes a proposal to utilize more local and less foreign funding. Contingency plans for the typhoon belt district to protect water distribution networks are presented. Two papers provide a general overview of water and sanitation systems; one for the Philippines, and one from Australia with relevant experiences for Asian and Pacific countries. The administrative structure used by the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources in water quality management is outlined, with suggestions for a gradual improvement in water quality. Women's roles as information sources in both a providing and a dissemination sense with respect to the use and operation of sanitation facilities are discussed, and a paper on artificial recharge to prevent sea water intrusion into groundwater supplies completes the series.

Abstract

The Proceedings of the Third Philippines Water Congress, sponsored by the Philippine Water Works Association, revolved around the topic "Government and Private Partnership in Water Supply". Nine full-length papers are presented in the report. Two are technical; one covers handpump and handpumped well maintenance, and the other field jointing of water pipelines. A case history for further development of the Angat River includes a proposal to utilize more local and less foreign funding. Contingency plans for the typhoon belt district to protect water distribution networks are presented. Two papers provide a general overview of water and sanitation systems; one for the Philippines, and one from Australia with relevant experiences for Asian and Pacific countries. The administrative structure used by the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources in water quality management is outlined, with suggestions for a gradual improvement in water quality. Women's roles as information sources in both a providing and a dissemination sense with respect to the use and operation of sanitation facilities are discussed, and a paper on artificial recharge to prevent sea water intrusion into groundwater supplies completes the series.
