Estancia oil spill cleanup procedure questioned
MetadataShow full item record
The oil spill response program manager of the Univesity of the Philippine Visayas and consultant of Gov. Arthur Defensor Sr. has expressed dissatisfaction over the cleanup in Brgy. Botongon, Estancia town. Dr. Resurrection Sadaba said he had been telling cleanup contractor Kuan Yu Global Technologies to place absorbent booms along the shore to contain the oil every time they perform high-pressure flushing on the rocks, but to no avail. The work thus becomes ineffective; the oil goes back and forth to the sea thus the workers have to clean the rocks again, Sadaba explained.
