8 Comprehensive Barangay Solid Waste Management Program Ordinance Number 1 Series 0f 2007 In year 2007 the Barangay came up with a strategy to address the concerns of the environment, economy and social sector with strategic focus on the solid waste management program. This is due to lack of garbage disposal system, waterlilies grew on rivers that block waterways, number of housewives had no productive employment.(Strategies)The program was made to establish a solid waste collection system, engaging community participation in solid waste management, livelihood generation from waste materials (one resource is the waterlily),partnership with the city government and religious sector (machinery).Photos courtesy of Brgy.

10 Waterlily or Water Hycinth * Water hyacinth is a free-floating perennial plant that can grow to a height of 3 feet. * The dark green leave blades are circular to elliptical in shape attached to a spongy, inflated petiole. *Underneath the water is a thick, heavily branched, dark fibrous root system. *The water hyacinth has striking light blue to violet flowers located on a terminal spike. Water hyacinth is a very aggressive invader and can form thick mats. *Water hyacinth has no known direct food value to wildlife and is considered a pest species.
11 Multi-faceted Threats 1. Hindrance to water transport Multi-faceted Threats 1. Hindrance to water transport. Canals and freshwater rivers can become impassable as they clog up with densely intertwined carpets of the weeds. 2. Clogging intakes of irrigation, hydropower and water supply systems. Water hyacinth causes blockages to the flow of electricity, flooding, and equipment damage. 3. Increased disease in the habitat: Malaria, degue, and water borne parasites and other water borne diseases increase as the water hyacinths provide habitats for mosquitoes. 4. Increased evaporation and transpiration of water. It has been discovered that water loss can be as much as 1.8 times that of evaporation from waterways free of these plants. 5. Fishing opportunities:. Fish populations decrease as water begins to lose oxygen and sunlight. Populations of crocodiles and snakes increase. In areas where fishermen are barely able to sustain themselves from this industry, this is an economic disaster. 6. Reduced biodiversity: When water hyacinth thrives, it out competes other aquatic plants. This causes an imbalance in the micro‐ecosystem resulting in reduced flora and the fauna that depend on it. Localized water quality also deteriorates which may be harmful to people who rely on the waterway for drinking water.
