Cavite takes action against water pollution
MetadataShow full item record
Local government authorities in this city have started efforts to clean rivers in the lowland and upland districts of the province following reports that some tributaries are contaminated by waste and toxic chemicals. River dredging and clearing operations were relaunched in Bacoor District in January as a course of action against floods and pollution in the area. During the launch, waste traps were installed along waterways bounding several barangays (villages) in the district.
