MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Natural Resources (DENR) released its recent memorandum order, which detailed the guidelines on the installation or construction of Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) in Boracay Island. The Memorandum Order No. 2018-04—dated September 18 and signed by Secretary Roy Cimatu—states that hotels, resort, and similar establishments can now connect to Concessionaires, such as Boracay Island Water Company, ordering the said Concessionaires to collect and treat the wastewater of their own respective clients. The Memorandum directs the Concessionaires to issue certifications that their respective customers are either connected to the sewer line or have their own compliant individuals STPs. This certification will serve as a requirement for the hotel or establishment to operate.
