Sitio Camachile in Nabuclod, Floridablanca, Pampanga is home to 251 families, or roughly 1,000 individuals, mostly Aetas. While they are used to living with minimum basic necessities in their mountainous community, access to clean water is easily one of their most pressing need. Everyday, local residents, including women and children walk downhill to the stream at the foot of the mountain to get two or three pails of water for their daily activities.
With the installation of a hydraulic ram pump, carrying water from the stream to their homes has become a thing of the past.
Through a collaborative project between the Don Honorio Ventura State University based in Bacolor, Pampanga and the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Region III, in cooperation with the local government of Floridabalanca, a hydraulic ram pump was recently installed in the community. The Hydram, as the pump is called, is a device that utilizes the energy from flowing water such as a spring, stream or river to pump water to a height above its source. It uses a mechanism that pushes an average water discharge of 22 liters per minute and a multi-media filtration system that uses activated carbon, pebbles, coarse sand, and fine sand. It was developed through a DOST III funded research project conducted by Engr. Inla Diana Salonga of the DHVSU research, development and extension office.
