Sewage pipe on Boracay beach being traced
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) started its probe to trace where the sewage pipe found along the beach front of Boracay Island originated. “We are looking at where the pipe originated. We couldn’t penetrate the area yesterday because there were too many pieces of debris,” said Atty. Richard Favila, DENR chief for Boracay.
