NIA Region VI held a 2-day re-orientation seminar for its Operations and Maintenance Personnel from October 28-29, 2021 at the NIA Regional Office VI in Iloilo City. The Operations Section of the Engineering and Operations Division spearheaded the activity.
Regional Manager Engr. Rory F. Avance was the Resource Speaker for the 2-day seminar. RM Avance is a notable resource person of the agency for operations and maintenance matters even before he became the Regional Manager of Region VI.
The re-orientation seminar aimed to refresh and equip the O&M personnel with enough knowledge in the formulation and O&M plan in correlation with various hydrological data, to determine the target area and water schedule based on the cropping calendar with respect to hydrological computation and with coordination with the institutional aspect.
The participants were from the Aklan-Capiz and Antique Irrigation Management Offices. The seminar became a chance to also discuss and review the duties and responsibilities of the personnel in consonance with RA 10969 or the Free Irrigation Service Act.
