    Ceramic Water Filters from DOST-10 aims to reduce
    water-related diseases in Lantapan, Bukidnon

    The incidence of water-related diseases in Sitios Kibuda and Maliwanag in Bgy. Kibangay, Lantapan in Bukidnon is expected to be reduced by half.

    This after thirty-xix households in the area gained access to potable water through the utilization of Ceramic Water Filters under the Community Empowerment Through Science and Technology (CEST) Program of DOST-10.
    The Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology designed and manufactured the hydria ceramic water filter to reduce waterborne diseases by filtering bacteria and sediments from the households’ water supply.
    Each household received a 6-Liter Ceramic Water Filter during the culmination of Nutrition Month on July 29, 2022, at the Balila National High School, Lantapan, Bukidnon.
    Recipients were also oriented on the proper use and maintenance of the ceramic water filters.
    Interested communities who wish to avail of the CEST program may email or hand in their letter of intent to the DOST provincial offices in Bukidnon, Camiguin, Lanao del Norte, Misamis Oriental, and Misamis Occidental.
