MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is determined to finish in two months the assessment of commercial establishments that may have been releasing untreated wastewater, and sewage causing pollution into the waters of Boracay Island. So far, DENR has finished the assessment of 30 percent of the business firms, most of which are resorts, operating in Boracay Island, DENR Undersecretary Jonas Leones said. He pointed out that most establishments in Boracay have no wastewater treatment facility, while some are just connected to the island’s drainage system, which can only accommodate rainwater.
