Boracay rehab may go beyond 6 months
MetadataShow full item record
The closure of Boracay might be extended as rehabilitation efforts on the island may not be completed within six months, Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu said yesterday. Cimatu said more time might be needed to rehabilitate Boracay as 43 illegal pipes were discovered on the beachfront of the island where most tourists go swimming. A team from the Mines and Geosciences Bureau unearthed the illegal pipes after conducting a survey along the beach using a ground-penetrating radar. The team also found a high level of coliform bacteria in the waters.
