MetadataShow full item record
A top official of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR-6) claimed that untreated water is one of the factors which triggered the growth of algae in the famed Boracay Island. The polluted water came from informal settlers, who use detergents, which flows to a stream in Malay and then to the Boracay beach line. While bigger business establishment have their own treatment facilities, Sampulna did not discount the possibility that there are still others who do not observe proper wastewater management.
