Clarin Bohol Project

At least two barangays with an estimated 100 hectares of rain-fed rice fields will stand to benefit from a water impounding facility.  
Located in Poblacion Sur, the irrigation project was thru the efforts of Agriculture Sec. Arthur Yap who is on a project giving binge in his capacity as Cabinet steward for Bohol
Yap's effort to give projects outside his turf doused cold water to speculations that his concentration in spreading the gravy of the agriculture department was limited to the third district where he is eyeing the Congress seat. 
The Clarin facility replaced the old one which was wiped out by a water spout which hit the irrigation area last year.
Construction of the project started in earnest and  as of last report the work phase ran the gamut of setting up the stone rip-rap.
The DA allotted P9 million to finish the project.
Aside from Poblacion Sur, the neighboring village of Candajic will also benefit from the irrigation project.
