A Boracay resort owner said Wednesday that establishments on the island should not be obliged to put up their own sewage treatment plants because this is the job of water utilities. Boracay Island Water Company and Boracay Tubi Systems, should be the ones operating such facilities on the island, said Guenter Taus, a Boracay resort owner and president of the European Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines. "It's very clearly specified that the concessionaire is appointed by government. They should be the ones to build STPs," Taus said citing the Clean Water Act.
