THE Balili River System Revitalization Coalition (BRSRC), a multi-sectoral group  organized to harmonize all efforts and initiatives for the rehabilitation of the Balili River System along La Trinidad and the Sagudin River in Baguio City,  will soon have its own official website and web-based pollution monitoring system of the river.

Developed  by the University of the Cordilleras (UC), an academe member of the coalition, the BRSRC website project is expected to have its soft launch by June this year.

UC Center for Geographic Information Science Project Coordinator Engr. Nathaniel Vincent Lubrica  recently presented the website concept design among members of the BRSRC. The website will contain details about BRSRC, updates, programs and projects, among others.

It  will  also contain news, updates, announcements and information about the coalition. It will also allow members to  create blogs, discuss the  forums and chat with other members.

The contents for the pollution monitoring system will include the available pollution data from the Environment and Management Bureau of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (EMB-DENR) and the Baguio City Environment and Parks Management Office (CEPMO).

The web-based pollution monitoring system has a special component, an SMS or short messaging system feature which will cover reports from the barangays affecting the Balili River including those identified by BRSRC. The system is also capable of real time reporting, Lubrica added.

The concepts of Geographic Information System  will be translated into a web application to monitor the status of the Balili River based on standard river monitoring parameters.

Part of the funding for the website development project will come from the proceeds of the Balili Fun Run held

The BRSRC  is composed of stakeholders from Baguio City and La Trinidad local government units, national line agencies, academe, government owned and controlled corporations and non government organizations/private sector.
