The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Central Visayas will prioritize 11 rivers for cleanup and development. DENR Regional Executive Director Gilbert Gonzales has directed all provincial environment and natural resources officers to finalize profiling of river bodies in their areas, work closely with the local government units and stakeholders and proceed immediately with the clean-up of Class C water bodies. Class C water bodies are those that are identified “safe for propagation of fish, recreation and for post-treatment manufacturing processes.” In Central Visayas, there are 11 Class C rivers, according to the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB).
