TIEZA steps up Boracay rehab
MetadataShow full item record
The Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) has mobilized the construction of a temporary discharge pipeline to fast-track rehabilitation activities in Boracay at the onset of the rainy season in June. “The temporary outfall will prevent flooding on various underground utilities and road construction projects while TIEZA and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) augment their de-clogging activities in the drainage systems and sewerage facilities of Boracay,” TIEZA said in a statement. The outfall will have a discharge pipe extending up to 800 meters offshore of Balabag beach, catering to drainage water from the central Boracay section.
