Project Description

The Local Government Unit (LGU) of Roxas City in the Philippines has requested the support of a Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) to serve as a Wastewater Management Specialist. LGUs share the responsibility in the management and improvement of water quality within their territorial jurisdictions and establishment of the water quality management area action plan. The Roxas City wastewater management plan will be a valuable instrument that will serve as reference of the LGU’s further initiatives and actions for the preservation of the quality of its waters.

The PCRV will work in close collaboration with the City Environment and Natural Resources Officer and City Planning and Development Officer to lead a water situation and pollution assessment in coastal areas and barangays and assist in creating a Wastewater Management Plan. The PCRV will also design and conduct orientations/seminars/workshops on wastewater management.

Candidates selected for this position will be arriving in the Philippines together as a group, so while the departure dates for the whole group could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
