DENR gets tougher vs Manila Bay pollution
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) will further intensify the crackdown on pollution in Manila Bay starting next year to help improve its quality and save the water body from further environmental degradation, as the Supreme Court ordered. DENR is scheduled to meet next month with stakeholders to discuss measures to reduce the volume of indiscriminately disposed garbage in areas along Manila Bay, including untreated discharges from informal settlements that eventually flow into the bay and raise its level of coliform bacteria. “The objective is to bring down coliform level in Manila Bay,” Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu said.
