Protecting the mighty Talomo River

The Talomo River is the heartbeat of Hedcor’s Talomo Hydropower facilities that produce clean energy to power the thriving metropolis of Davao City. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources Environmental Management Bureau (DENR-EMB) has included the river among 31 Water Quality Management Areas nationwide and called on stakeholders, private firms, and communities to work together for a cleaner river, protecting water quality and improving it where needed.

With millions of lives dependent on Talomo River, Hedcor took on the responsibility of making sure its 4-kilometer upstream portion continues to thrive, further strengthening ties with DENR’s Adopt-A-River Program. 

Hedcor will participate in community mobilization activities of DENR and the local government to solicit the community participation and support for the program and ultimately provide a healthy, clean, and safe environment.
