Paano na ang mga lehitimong ancestral land claimants sa parte ng Busol na dini-develop ng BWD??? Nasusunod ba ang mga alituntunin ng ECC, nagsagawa ba ng EIAS o Environmental Impact  Assessment Study ang BWD para mabigyan ng ECC??? May building/development Permit ba na issue ang siyudad ng Baguio, ilan lamang ito sa ating mga katanungan sa ngayon. 

Para sa kaalaman ng publiko ang mga development na isinasagawa ng Baguio Water District sa Busol ay nasasakupan ng mga lehitimong ancestral land claims katulad ng clan ng Kalomis, Molintas, Gumangan, atbp. Katulad halimbawa ng Kalomis land claim na mayroong duly registered LRA approved survey plan. Eto ngayon ang isang tunay na Palaisipan at Katanungan, paano na ang interes ng mga lehitimong ancestral land claimants? Tingnan ang ilan sa mga larawan at ang kinaukulang captions.

lg-komentaryo-01A]  Were the terms and conditions of the cutting permit complied with regarding the cutting of the 80+ pine trees some being century old? Was the cutting witnessed by the concerned Barangay Officials, DENR Officials and concerned residents/stakeholders? Was the timber turned over to the CENRO? There appears no corresponding signage indicating the usual details with respect to the tree cutting activities.

lg-komentaryo-02B] Did the city issue development permit, excavation permit, etc? Was the BWD issued by NWRB water rights to drill in this part of the city? Was the Baguio City Mayor made aware of this project prior to the letter sent to him on July 1, 2019 by the DILG? Was the Baguio City Council made aware of this project? Take note na niluto ito (niluto -translated in English to mean was prepared ) ito noong  panahon pa ni Mayor Mauricio Domogan!!!
