Illegal connections to Boracay drains listed
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has released the names of businesses in this resort island that are allegedly dumping wastewater into storm drains. DENR Secretary Roy Cimatu read the names of hotels, resorts, restaurants, and infrastructures Thursday as the cleanup of the country’s most popular beach destination officially began. Cimatu said the drainage system, built by the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA), an attached agency of Department of Tourism (DOT), was meant to channel overflow rainwater to the sea.
