Antipolo firm may be sued over oil leak
MetadataShow full item record
Officials of Teresa town in Rizal province—which ended up a “catch basin” for spilled bunker fuel—were considering suing the cement company responsible for leaking oil into the Teresa River. Marlon Pielago, Teresa environment officer, said local executives were discussing whether or not to file charges against Solid Cement Corp., a cement manufacturing firm in Antipolo City, that spilled 2,000 liters of bunker fuel into the river system. Teresa, being the next town to Antipolo, “was the first one affected as it ended up being a catch basin [for the spilled fuel],” Pielago added.
