MetadataShow full item record
Amphibious excavators, dumping scows, dump trucks, debris segregator, and vacuum sewer jet cleaners were deployed in Manila Bay Tuesday, the first day of dredging operations to clean up the bay. “Sagip Manila Bay,” according to Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar, will cover the 1.5-kilometer stretch of Manila Bay shoreline from the Manila Yacht Club to the US Embassy. An estimated 225,000 cubic meters of silt siphoned off, according to Bureau of Equipment Director Toribio Noel Ilao.
