MetadataShow full item record
This island paradise is being eyed as another water quality management area (WQMA) in the region to ensure water quality protection. Engr. Bonifacio Enorme Jr., WQMA focal person of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Environment and Management Bureau (DENR-EMB), said declaring Boracat coasts as a WQMA would enable the body to conrol and prevent water pollution and to further protect the island's water quality. The creation of a WQMA was based on section 5 of the Philippines Clean Water Act of 2004 or RA 9275 which states that we need to manage all of the water quality across the Philippines, Enorme said.
