Boracay Water ready for Oct opening
MetadataShow full item record
The Boracay unit of Ayala-led Manila Water Co. Inc. is intensifying its operations in the island to ensure readiness in time for the reopening by October. Boracay Island Water Co. Inc. recently acquired additional desludging vehicles that can haul up to nine cubic meters of wastewater from households and establishments that are yet to connect to the sewer system. The treatment plants ensure that used water are treated and processed in strict compliance with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-mandated Class SB effluent water quality or water that is fit for recreational activities and would not pollute the island’s beach waters.
