Caliraya-Lumot Watershed Area Team (CLWAT) under the Watershed Management Department of the National Power Corporation (NPC) together with representatives from the DENR-CENRO Sta. Cruz conducted ground validation on the NGP sites within the CLWFR last July 4, 2019 at Brgy. San Antionio, Kalayaan, Laguna &Brgy. Cansuso, Cavinti, Laguna.
The purpose of the activity was to validated if the NGP sites of DENR overlapped with the established Rehabilitation Plantations of NPC-CLWAT.
With the continuouseffort to rehabilitate open areas inside the watershed, various plantations were established by DENR within the jurisdiction of NPC.
There were portions of the plantations in of CLWAT that were also established with NGP plantations, thus, the need for a ground validation and verification for the benefit of both agencies. With this, shape files and maps of rehabilitation projects of both agencies will be more accurate and correct.
