MetadataShow full item record
Presidential Adviser for Environmental Protection and Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA) general manager Neric Acosta said recently that hundreds of industries in Metro Manila and CALABARZON are in clear violation of R.A. 9275 or “The Philippine Clean Water Act of 2004” which aims to promote and encourage the protection of the country’s water resources by local governments, Water Quality Management Authorities (WQMAs) like the LLDA, communities, and the private sector.“This is very alarming. Studies show that there are hundreds of industries, businesses, and other operators that are blatantly violating the Clean Water Act,” Acosta, principal author of the Clean Water Act, said during the LLDA’s corporate planning seminar.
