One Pangasinan Alliance of Local Government Units (OPAL), Philippines

One Pangasinan Alliance At A Glance

The One Pangasinan Alliance of Local Government Units (OPAL), an alliance of one city and six municipalities on the Philippine island of Luzon, chose an example from Thailand – the best practice from Udonthani, where a wetland for waste-water treatment had been constructed, appealed to this area with its many natural waterways. The pilot project will stay close to the best practice original: Alaminos city will improve its canal system which has waste-water in it, channel this waste-water into a series of ponds for natural waste-water treatment before releasing the water back to the canal system that will ultimately drain into the waters into the Hundred Islands National Park. Based on this experience, further wetlands will be constructed in the other municipalities after the end of the DELGOSEA project. An agreement with the landowner of the selected site has just been reached and the construction can begin.
