SM Foundation's Rainwater Harvesting for Sustainable Impact

8:47:00 AM

As part of the SM Green Movement, the SM Foundation has recently introduced a rainwater harvesting arrangement at the Brgy. Irawan Birthing Facility located in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. This undertaking is aligned with their objective to bolster environmental preservation efforts and secure the well-being of upcoming generations.

SMFI Health and Medical Programs Senior Project Manager Albert Uy inspects the water catchment to ensure it reliability.

In a concerted endeavor to amplify water preservation and adept administration within the premises, the ingenious contrivance adeptly gathers rainwater coursing down from the rooftop and conduits. Skillfully navigating its course through meticulously crafted vinyl-coated mesh filters, this ingenious system stands as a vigilant sentinel, unwaveringly upholding the sanctity of the water's quality. A capacious reservoir boasting an impressive 800-liter capacity stands as a testament to this orchestrated effort, earmarking the harvested water to satiate the establishment's non-potable demands with elegance and efficacy. From the nurturing caress bestowed upon verdant flora to the meticulous cleansing rituals, and even to the discrete yet essential act of toilet flushing, every droplet derived from this meticulous process serves a noble purpose, epitomizing the fusion of ingenuity and responsibility.

 Faucets connected to the rainwater catchment are duly marked to help guide the community.

The rainwater harvesting facility also operates without electricity and features labeled faucets for intuitive recycled water use. Midwife Narcisa Jagmis, who leads the said birthing facility, said that the facility will help them reduce their reliance on the city’s water supply systems.

 Midwife Narcisa Jagmis observes as the system collects rainwater from the gutters.

“Mahalagang hindi kami nawawalan ng tubig sa center, lalo na po pag nagsimula kaming magoperate bilang birthing clinic. Ngunit minsan po, walang dumadaloy na tubig at wala kaming mapagkukunan,” Jagmis shared.

“Kaya napaka laking tulog po ng natural na tubig mula sa rainwater catchment system na. Madali namin itong naaccess upang gamiting panglinis o pandilig dahil konektado ito sa mga gripo. Ang tubig naman mula sa main line ay maitatabi namin para sa aming sterile operations,” she said. .
