Gov't to resolve water regulator issue in Boracay
MetadataShow full item record
A task force leading the cleanup of Boracay has asked the Office of the President to decide which between two government agencies have regulatory powers over water concessionaires in the area, an official said Wednesday. Massive pollution which led to the six-month closure of the island has been blamed on inadequate sewage and many illegal pipes have been dug up by the beach since it started in April. Both Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority and the National Water Resources Board are claiming to be the water regulator on the island.
