Realignment of laws on Boracay sewage sought
MetadataShow full item record
The local government of Malay, Aklan and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) are working to make guidelines that will reconcile “issues” between a municipal ordinance and a recently-issued DENR order. Municipal Ordinance No. 307 series of 2012 and Memorandum Circular No. 2018-006 both cover the establishment of sewage treatment plants (STPs) in this famed island resort. They aim to address water quality problems in Boracay, which is now close to three months into its half-year rehabilitation.
