As part of advancing the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Mimaropa’s efforts in promoting access to basic needs and water security in the region, the DOST through the Provincial Science and Technology Office (PSTO) Romblon recently launched another Water Desalination Project in Cobrador Island, Romblon.

Cobrador Island, as the farthest island in the province is known for its breathtaking crystal-clear seawater and pristine white sandy beaches. However, despite the stunning water scenery, the residents of the island face a significant scarcity of potable water. Consequently, most of them have no choice but to depend on wells, streams, or collected rainfall as their primary sources of potable water.
