MAGTIBAY  __________________________ Published by B.B. Magtibay's Publishing House Imus, Cavite, Philippines e-mail: INTERNATIONAL EDITION Electronic Version FIRST RELEASE ISBN 971-92113-2-6   4 PREFACE This book is a compilation of Philippine Regulations on Sanitation and Wastewater Systems . This international edition is the improvement of the locally published "Policies and Guidelines on Wastewater Disposal Systems". Requests from agencies outside the Philippines of copies of the local edition via the internet prompted the compiler to prepare an electronic version designed to cater the needs of Filipinos as well as foreign readers. Pertinent documents included here were obtained from existing laws, regulations, and standards such as Republic Acts, Presidential Decrees, Board Resolutions, Administrative Orders, Implementing Rules and Regulations, and other relevant statutes which are packaged in chronological order to track down the sequence of policy development. To maintain emphasis on sanitation and wastewater, full text is used if the policies and guidelines are directly concerned about the subject while excerpts were  presented if otherwise. Professions and institutions on sanitation and wastewater systems are included in Volume 5 of this series. Since sanitation and wastewater is also the concern of other groups, this compilation is also intended for the use of other related professionals, local government units, planning officers, researchers,  policy makers, teachers, consultants (local and international), business firms, board exam reviewees, students, and the public in general who may be interested in the field of sanitation and wastewater systems, environmental health and environmental management. Because imperfection is inevitable, the compiler welcomes any suggestion or comment that will further improve the presentation of this book. Calling his attention for any error that may be noticed will  be highly appreciated. B.B.M. E-mail: 31 December 2006   5 ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The compiler wishes to extend his gratitude to his colleagues working in several sector agencies (i.e., DOH, DILG, DENR, LWUA, MWSS, NEDA, PSSE, and ITN) who shared with him copies of relevant materials during his involvement in various sector activities such as workshops, lectures, seminars, consultations, fora and researches. Special acknowledgment to the staff of Environmental Health Service, DOH and Environmental Management Bureau, DENR is herein accorded who unselfishly shared with him copies of relevant policies they prepared. The National Library as well as libraries of the following institutions are also worth mentioning: UNICEF, WHO, World Bank, LWUA, EMB-DENR, Imus Municipal Library, Miriam College, De La Salle University and Philippine Women’s University. Comments from his colleagues to improve the first edition is also acknowledged. The compiler will not forget the efforts of his former supevisors at DOH (Engr. Delfin Gonzalez, Engr. Pablo Imperio, Dr. Lina Manapsal, and Dr. Manuel Roxas) and at UNICEF (Mr. Philippe Heffinck and Mr. Hernan Jaramillo) who provided a valuable inspiration in pursuing his career in the field of water and sanitation. Utmost gratitude is also relayed to the Philippine Center for Water and Sanitation who supported the first publication and promoted the book in the conduct of their training activities. Expression of thanks also to the organizers of the 2000 World Water Day celebration in the Philippines where the launching of the first edition of the book was included in the program. The encouragement and support of his wife and children is a motivating factor for the completion of this book. Finally, he would like to give his praise and thanksgiving to God Almighty who provided him wisdom, strength, patience, endurance and needed resources. B.B.M.
